Of course, you have to make sure that you complete an essential part of your Jane Austen Centre visit by stepping into the Regency Tea Room. Immerse yourself in the timeless charm of an English afternoon tea with Mr Darcy, featuring a delicious assortment of exquisite, timeless cakes, divine finger sandwiches, and warm scones served with Dorset clotted cream and seasonal jam.

Should the allure of afternoon tea with Mr Darcy not capture your fancy, indulge in the tea rooms’ selection of regency themed treats, including cream teas, delicious cakes, and a diverse selection of teas and coffees. As proud holders of the Tea Guild Award of Excellence, you can always be sure that you’ll have a wonderful time, and feel like royalty. Whilst it is recommended to book afternoon tea with Mr Darcy in advance to ensure you are able to visit, you can always feel free to drop by for a spontaneous bite, and the team will strive to offer you a gorgeously laid table.

When it comes to tea, even that is themed. The Jane Austen Blend is a light blend of China black teas, popular in regency times, when Indian teas were not readily available. Children’s afternoon teas are also available, meaning that the whole family can enjoy the experience.
