Live out your Regency dreams in Bath
Bath; a historically beautiful UNESCO World-Heritage City is commonly known for its remarkable Georgian architecture and historical ties to the Romans but the Regency era is perhaps most prominently recalled in the city’s recent rise to fame through Netflix hit-series Bridgerton. It is only the latest in a long-line of screen debuts for the city, but is certainly in-vogue this season. Whether your desire to live through the Regency era comes from the well-read titles of Jane Austen or modern-day débuts, you’re sure to be in for a treat with an array of Regency delights in waiting.
Imagine yourself a Duke or Duchess caught up in the romance and scandal of the 1800s, as you cross the cobblestones on Bath Street in the ‘Spa Quarter’ and admire the striking line of colonnades leading towards the historic heart of the city. Parade through the Abbey courtyard to find the elegant Georgian Guildhall with its grand stairwells and vast ceilings, with a number of quaint tea rooms within short walking distance should you fancy a spot of afternoon tea on your stroll.
For avid fans of anything quintessentially Austen or off in search of their very own Duke of Hastings, there are a range of ‘Bridgerton’ themed tours on offer to show you round key filming locations across the city, while the Jane Austen Centre will let you in on all the secrets of the well-known writer; there is even an annual festival dedicated in honour of her historically close links with Bath.
If you’re planning a home-from-home visit to the beautiful city of Bath then you will likely need somewhere to stay. Bath Self Catering offer a luxurious range of accommodation to suit your personal needs, with many offering décor hints to the Regency era, helping to create the perfect Regency bolthole for your stopover in the city.
