Fashion Museum and Assembly Rooms

Today I visited the Fashion Museum in Bath as well as the Assembly Rooms. The Fashion Museum is astounding with a collection of historical pieces, specifically Regency and Victorian dress but modern pieces too! The Assembly Rooms were once the hub for fashionable Georgian society with balls, a tea room and a card playing room.  In both of Jane Austen's novel set in Bath, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, the Assembly rooms are used as backgrounds for key scenes.
