William Herschel Museum: 1764

19 New King Street, Bath, England.

It was from this house, using a telescope of his own design that William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. Number 19 New King Street forms part of a terrace and is by Bath standards a modest town-house. It was built around 1764 and probably designed by one of the city’s less celebrated architects Strachan., and follows a fairly standard layout over five floors. 200 years after the historic discovery of Uranus, the house was restored and inaugurated as a museum. It was restored again in 2000 and today is a Grade II listed building.
