Assembly Rooms, Bath, UK

The Assembly Rooms were the centre of social activity during Jane Austen's time. This is where they came to attend balls, where mothers and chaperones brought their daughters to Bath for the social season, hoping they would meet all the eligible men in the city, and marry them off to a suitable husband - as captured in Jane Austen's novels set in the Regency era.

The beautiful Tea Room. I like the understated elegance of this Georgian Tea Room. It doesn't have the opulent extravagance of the Versailles, but still has that quiet grandeur. Unfortunately the other rooms were in use, so we weren't able to have a look at them. Despite this, I couldn't help being glad that such a beautiful historic building is still being used and appreciated.
