Saturday(18th June) saw the start of the Jane Austen Regency Week taking place at Alton and at Chawton, Hampshire.

This event started back in 2005 as a single day event, gradually it developed into a weekend until we find ourselves able now to participate in 9 days of activities, seminars, dancing etc.

As well as the activities taking place, there are many attractions nearby to explore and discover, including:

Jane Austen’s House Museum, Chawton House Library, The Vyne, The Curtis Museum as well as more modern sites such as the Watercress Line, a fine steam railway and the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium.

There are many events that still have tickets,  so, if you’d like to join in, click on this link: www.janeaustenregencyweek.co.uk/jarw-intro.html for more information.

Alternatively, contact us here at Classic British Drama Tours,  to book a bespoke tour just for you and your party. Whether you want to visit Lyme Regis or Lyme Park (Pemberley in the BBC P&P series) with dancing in between, we’d love to help you plan a tour to your specifications!

Have a great week everyone!
