"Let the tastes of Georgian-era Bath transport you to a time when Pride and Prejudice author Jane Austen and dandy Beau Nash called the splendid UNESCO World Heritage Centre home. Historical tales and culinary delights combine as you sample food and drink popular in the city during the rules of kings George I, II, III and IV (we're talking between 1714-1830). With this insightful combination of street food and seated tastings, you’ll hear tales of Bath’s lost food retailers while enjoying the elegant architecture of the era."
