    As a Janeite, this was top of my list of things to do in Bath! I really enjoyed the experience, the exhibitions were really interesting, the actors were fab and super friendly, I indulged in a few pictures with Mr Darcy dressed up in Regency clothing, which was fun! I really liked being able to try my hand at using the quill and ink to write. The gift shop is small, but that's probably best, otherwise I would have spent even more money! They do have a wider selection on their website. Will definitely come back to try the afternoon tea!

    Girl with short hair was so helpful when she found a damsel in distress. I can’t thank her enough. Building easy to find thanks to statue out front. Staff all friendly. Actor playing Mr Wickham should not be wearing a pierced earring. Found him too confident, his talk and acting over the top, so much so that left the tour early. Everyone is replaceable.

    Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by two young ladies at the centre. A friendly atmosphere it was a fantastic start. Our guide was young and extremely good and friendly he deserves a special thanks. He has a warm and great personality. His spoken English is fantastic in my opinion he should be an actor, he could play Mr Darcy younger brother.
