You can really imagine Regency Society taking tea, making aquaintances, seeking a husband and dancing in these glorious rooms. Take time to enjoy something at the cafe too - it is lovely!

Fans of Jane Austen know all about the Assembly Rooms. A pity then that there are no information boards mentioning her or the history of the rooms. The rooms themselves are grand - mainly because of the impressive chandeliers, but they lack atmosphere - being...More

Assembly rooms warm and welcoming on a cold day. A beautiful chandelier is worth a look. Best of all the excellent Fashion Museum display of clothes through the ages, including some Royal clothes on loan. Excellent audio guide. Not to be missed.
