Dinner with Mr. Darcy

From: £40.00

While we can’t promise you a dashing Colin Firth look-a-like, we can provide some of the best local delicacies that Bath has to offer! Come with us on a Jane Austen themed food tour of the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, where we’ll take you back to the Regency period and sample the favoured fayre from that time.

Our tour will take place on foot around the city, where we’ll get to “take the air” in the most Georgian of fashions, stopping off at several food venues to sample speciality recipes made with local Bath produce. Between venues, we’ll follow Jane’s footsteps around the city of Bath, taking a moment to pause outside her homes in the city. We’ll talk about Jane’s time in Bath, a must-visit spa resort for the highest of Georgian society, and discuss the foods Jane mentions in her books. Did you know she had a particular love for Bath Buns?
