Why hello there Jane Austen Centre!

IMG_0842

All these outfits on display are reproductions, but still a lot of fun to look at.

IMG_0843

Aaaw that purse with a tassle!

IMG_0845

And the embroidered buttons! Love.

IMG_0847

The cravat! I feel they should make a comeback.

IMG_0851

Aaaah kids costumes ;_;

IMG_0854

My love for you is breaking my heart.

IMG_0855

Ah the regimental man

IMG_0856

Even Mrs. Bennet cannot resist.

The outfit is a replica of a 1805 uniform.

Tea!

IMG_0862

I reeeeeally want a tea caddy like that.

IMG_0863

Also I like this style of sleeve.

Miss Austen being hilarious after being “requested” to dedicate her book to the Prince Regent.

E modelling how this is a long narrow hall really. Also that gramma had to stay in the gift shop because she didn’t really care (blasphemy!) and didn’t want to bother with the stairs.

This dress had an interesting story, in that it was discovered all cut out, but was assembled in the 2000s.

Shelf of accoutrements.

IMG_0876

They had a little dress up section, but as I have my own gowns, I didn’t bother. E indulged though 😀

IMG_0877

A letter penned by Ms. Austen! So pretty!

IMG_0879

Would not mind owning that writing desk, not at all.

IMG_0882

Another reproduction.

IMG_0886

I’m honestly not sure what those chopstick like things are.

IMG_0891

Persuasion costume!

IMG_0892

I love this adaptation, SO MUCH.

IMG_0893

All this detail you don’t even notice in the movie!

IMG_0896

Also, I like her hat.

That was the last room at the centre, so then we returned to the gift shop. We had planned on having tea there, since they have a tea room, but they have no elevator and it was on the top floor so no go.

So, at the gift shop, they have these tote bags that say “I ♥ Darcy” on them, and other things with that phrase.
My gramma “Who’s Darcy and why is he a big deal?”
Yeeeeeah.

Anyway, we had delicious lunch at a place that was on the way back to the hotel.
Then I took my gramma back to the hotel, while E went to the Roman Baths, which I’d been to before and actually remember fairly well (though if I end up in Bath again, I’ll probably give them another go).
