- Nunmber one Royal Crescent was the first town house of the Royal Crescent to be completed, and is an excellent example of Palladian architecture. Decorated with handsome hand-painted marbled wallpaper, the rooms of the house contain period furniture and the artefacts of 18th century daily life. On the ground floor there is a dining room with a sumptuously spread table, and a study where the men took their port and card games. On the first floor a drawing room and a bedroom are carefully preserved. The basement kitchen, with its many utensils and long wooden bench table, seems still alive and working, right down to the old-fashioned mousetraps. Don't miss the period sedan chair in the corridor under the stairwell.
