Would you care for tea, sir?


Enjoy a delicious period style afternoon tea on lovely old china while watching dance displays by Dance Kaleidoscope and a Military display by La belle Alliance. It is worth the visit for the afternoon tea alone. There are always lots of interesting home made goodies. Music will be provided by the wonderful Sound Austen.

Sound Austen make beautiful music.


You can participate in Maypole and Regency dancing both of which are easy and great fun. Period games including Game of Graces, Game of Siam, Pall Mall, Battledore and Shuttlecock will also be available for you to try your hand at.

Meet Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett as you step back into the world of Jane Austen in the stunning grounds of the Abbey Museum.
