Step into the ornate Georgian Theatre Royal Bath and watch a variety of entertaining performances. Enjoy the elaborately decorated Main House or the modern Ustinov Studio. Take your family to the Egg Theatre, which has shows for all ages.
Built in 1805, the Theatre Royal Bath was the first Theatre Royal outside of London. Visit this beautiful example of Georgian architecture and see ornate plasterwork, gilt decorations and a frieze of the comic and tragic muses. Its success has seen two additional theaters added since its construction, the Ustinov Studio in 1997 and the Egg Theatre in 2005.
