Things we're loving
Jane Austen lived in Bath over a period of five years in her twenties. We asked Dr. Gabrielle Malcolm, author of Fan Phenomena: Jane Austen, There’s Something About Darcy, to tell us about the influence the city had on the woman and her writings
Bridgerton, Netflix’s smash-hit series based on the novels by Julia Quinn, depicts Regency England as a place of romance, scandal and the fashionable elite. Set in 1813, the same year that Jane Austen’s novel Pride & Prejudice was published, and partly filmed in Bath, our guest blogger and Austen expert Christine Hughes wonders whether Jane would have recognised the settings, fashions and social mores in this fantasy version of Regency England?

Surpassed all expectations. Friendly and knowledgeably tour guide was a highlight. Everything organised so well. Obvious a lot of time spent on planning to make this truly special. Special mention to the hair dresser who made a bob regency appropriate!
The whole event has been amazing. The ball was a definite highlight. The whole experience has been a dream come true.
The tour was amazing. I enjoyed every bit of it. Particularly the part of dressing up back in time and learning all the dances. It felt like a dream! Specially attending the ball! Thank you so much for everything.
