A Nice Start to 2012.

A group of friends got together in Bath for a Regency New Year. We wanted to make the setting as authentic as possible so we lit the rooms with only candlelight and the table was set using period correct porcelain, cutlery and glasses. We had a beautiful meal which was made from recipies from the cookbook of Martha Lloyd. On the 1st of January we enjoyed a stroll around Bath and tea at the Pump Rooms.

It sounds like the perfect way to celebrate New Year. :) Was the party held in the house that was used, in the 95 version of Persuasion, as Sir Walter Elliot's House in Bath? I recognise the dining room from the film! :)

Hi Issy,

Yes you are right. The house was used for the filming of Persuasion :-)
