Experience the magical atmosphere of No.1 Royal Crescent after-hours!

On the third Thursday of every month, starting June 20th, we will be hosting special late openings at No.1 Royal Crescent! Wander the twilit museum and take in the story of the house from a fresh perspective. 
With standard admission to the museum (£15.50 per person and free for children when accompanied by a paying adult), you will enjoy after-hours access to the museum’s current self-led immersive tour. Alcoholic and soft-drink refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the evening, and our on-site gift shop – short-listed for the 2023 Museums + Heritage Awards – will be open for your perusal. Booking in advance is recommended but walk-up tickets may be available.

In June you'll be able to sample our fabulous Georgian punch. Only £3.00 per glass.

In September our late night opening will feature a special Jane Austen themed self-led immersive tour, in conjunction with the Jane Austen Festival.

Museum Late Opening Dates and Times


It is advised you pre book your tickets to ensure your preferred time slot. For tickets on the day, please head to the museum to request a ´walk in´ slot. Please note on the day tickets are not available online.

Concession tickets are available for seniors, students, NHS workers and Blue Light card holders with valid ID.

Bath Preservation Trust Member tickets

These are available but we would ask members to consider purchasing a ticket to support the museum at this time to secure our future. If you do opt for a free pre-booked BPT member ticket during opening hours, please ensure you bring your membership card with you to validate this when you visit.

Annual passes are non-transferable. If you are returning on a valid annual pass please select the appropriate ticket and ensure that you bring this with you.

Consider adding Gift Aid to your ticket

Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - which helps us continue to run our museum. An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to Bath Preservation Trust.

Visitor information

We welcome walk in visitors . Visitors are encouraged to pre-book and attend at their specified time slot, arriving on time to help avoid queues outside the museum – if you would like a guidebook, we allow time to purchase this as part of your welcome to the museum.

We operate a one way route with three flights of stairs up and four flights of narrow winding stairs down. Please ensure you can manage these steps before booking or contact us to arrange for an accessible tour.

If you will be visiting with a carer, please book just your ticket and a free of charge carer ticket. Your carer will be allowed in with you.

We have limited access for wheelchair users and due to the fact we are a historic house, not all areas can be accessed. Visits for wheelchair users will be supported by our team. Please contact us before booking, if you require this assistance and / or visit the accessibility page of our website:

We are running a family trail and will provide sheets you can keep.

Visitors who arrive after their start time may not be admitted and refunds are not available for late attendees.

Visitors will enter the museum using the main door to the house, to the left of the shop entrance.

The shop is open but separate to the museum route. You can visit the shop before or after your visit and the entrance is to the right of the museum.

BPT reserves the right to close the museum at short notice. If BPT cancel the event, ticket holders will be informed and can either visit on another date or receive a full refunded.
