What a stunning place this is! Having been the first house to be created in John Wood's Palladian design, this restored town-house is incredible. Immerse yourself in what living in the 18th Century felt like and learn about some fascinating stories. The bath collection is exquisite and depicts the fabulous architectural history of Bath and how this provincial town got transformed into the world famous Georgian Spa. The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is dedicated to the achievements of the extraordinary astronomers and musicians. Can you believe that it is from this house that William discovered Uranus back in 1781? Do not miss out on the Beckford's Tower and Museum. It is an outstanding architectural achievement!
Bath itself needs no introduction and The Bath Preservation Trust looks after four the city's most prestigious museums. Thanks to all of their hard work and dedication, we can still enjoy these fabulous places. No.1 Royal Crescent, Building of Bath Collection, Beckford's Tower and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy collectively are maintained and ran by the Trust and you can visit them either on their own or as part of a joint ticket. Each museum has something different to offer its many thousands of visitors and I was in awe walking round all four. I am sitting here trying to work out which one I liked the most and the more I think about it, the more I cannot decide.
