Pride & Prejudice House
 

Our Mission:

Pride & Prejudice House:
Historic Park and Event Centre.

Pride and Prejudice House will operate as an historically themed event centre, and will welcome its guests into the world of Jane Austen, just as we all have dreamed. Everything at Longbourn will be precisely as it was in Pride and Prejudice. Head over to our Kickstarter and reserve tickets now.

 
 
 

About Us

Regency Encounters is renowned for their ambitious undertakings and the epic nature of their events. We are the company behind the Pride & Prejudice Ball, which began with a Kickstarter campaign in 2014, and now draws crowds of hundreds in multiple cities. We have been holding the ball 2 - 3 times a year for the last 4 years. We create fantastical experiences for our guests, and have always had Jane Austen at the heart of our passion.

TheProject

Luckily, the house itself is in great condition. The only work it needs is cosmetic, to make it look as it did in Pride & Prejudice. 

We will be incorporating in Britain, and using the equity in the house to finance its operations in the beginning. We have the key staff members already retained, including the housekeeper, caretaker, manager and lead costumier. With these key people in place, we will be able to launch very soon after taking possession of the house. 
Once the house opens, we will be running events almost every day, which will be an immense amount of work, but we cannot wait to dive in and make this crazy dream a reality.

 
 
 
 

Our Events

Pride and Prejudice House will operate as an historically themed event centre, and will welcome its guests into the world of Jane Austen, just as we all have dreamed. Everything at Longbourn will be precisely as it was in Pride and Prejudice. Staff will be in costume, even in character. The house will be decorated just as it was in the show. It will really be just like Austenland. Our ticketed events and private rentals will allow you to eat at the dining table, sleep on the beds, even take a turn in the prettyish sort of wilderness on one side of the lawn.

 

jane austEn tea parties

Come for afternoon tea, with a tour of the house and grounds. Take plenty of selfies and endeavour not to faint. Fill yourself with dainties and act out all your favourite scenes. And yes, we can rent you a costume on site.

Retreats

We will be holding regular, all-inclusive weekend retreats at Pride & Prejudice House.  Or, stay with us during the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, just half an hour from Longbourn. There are balls, shows, lectures, and much more during the 10 days of the festival.

Weddings

Yes, you can get married at Longbourn! There is a church next door, connected to Longbourn by a gate in a hedge, which leads directly into the churchyard. It is a medieval stone church, and eminently suitable for a Jane Austen style wedding. 

Pride & Prejudice Ball

Come in the evening for a Regency costume ball, including dinner, music, dancing and games. We plan to convert the stable block into our own Assembly Rooms for some capital dancing and hopefully some witty repartee.
