Cromford Mills is hosting an event later today (Wednesday, June 17) called Afternoon Tea with Jane Austen, from 2pm-3.45pm.
The popularity and social importance of tea drinking in Regency England is epitomised by Jane Austen’s characters nearly sixty times in her best-known novels. Crucial events transpire around sitting down and taking tea. Jane’s letters reveal that she was a tea lover. Tickets cost £15 per person and include tea and scones. Call 01629 825995 to book.
