Both No. 1 Royal Crescent and the Museum of Bath Architecture have been awarded at least five consecutive Certificates of Excellence from Trip Advisor. These are earned by attractions (and other businesses such as restaurants and accommodation) which consistently earn 5 star reviews from visitors. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to share how much they have enjoyed their visit! Only 10% of attractions are in this club – aptly named the Hall of Fame. Here is our award and some images of the volunteers at No. 1 Royal Crescent celebrating receiving it.
No. 1 Royal Crescent won TWO awards at the SW Tourism Awards 2014-15. We won a Gold Award for Access and Inclusivity and a Highly Commended for Best Large Visitor Attraction. Please read the press release with more details here.
No.1 Royal Crescent was accredited as a VisitEngland Quality Assured Visitor Attraction with Gold Status in 2015. Gold Status put us in an elite category that year of just 21 (out of over 900) visitor attractions in England scoring over 90% in a mystery visit by judges. We were in very fine company alongside HM Tower of London, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Beaulieu in Hampshire.
No. 1 Royal Crescent won a prestigious ‘Highly Commended’ certificate in the Restoration of a Georgian Building in an Urban Setting category of the Georgian Group Architectural Awards 2014. Sponsored by Savills, these prestigious annual awards are won only by teams and/or individuals who show clear vision and a commitment to recreating Georgian buildings and landscapes across the United Kingdom.
No. 1 Royal Crescent won a ‘Highly Commended’ (i.e. Runner-Up) at the 2014 Museums+Heritage Awards for Best Permanent Collection. Losing out to the new Mary Rose Museum, and beating the likes of Historic Royal Palaces and the Birmingham Science Museum, meant that we were absolutely thrilled at the recognition!
No.1 Royal Crescent, The Herschel Museum of Astronomy and the Museum of Bath Architecture have been awarded a 2018 Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor. Beckford’s Tower is too small to qualify – yet!
No. 1 Royal Crescent won the award for the Best Visitor Attraction in the over 50,000 visitors per year category at Bath’s Events, Hospitality and Tourism Awards 2014
No. 1 Royal Crescent won the Leisure and Tourism Award at the Bath Business Awards 2014.
Bath Preservation Trust won a Sandford Award 2014. Sandford Awards recognise the quality and excellence of education programmes run at historic sites and are ratified by the Heritage Education Trust
