Goodybye Longbourn!

Due to circumstances beyond our control here at Classic British Drama Tours, we have to give you the sad news that Longbourn will not be part of our Pride And Prejudice tours for the foreseeable future.

This is due to the property being sold after the death of the previous owner.
Longbourn is now in new hands and for the time being, is closed to visitors.

I am in contact with the new owners and am hoping to come to an agreement with them to facilitate a limited viewing of the Bennet family home at some point in the future.

Fingers crossed, and watch this space!
