An Austen Day Out

What I love about living in Surrey is there are so many lovely places to visit. On the Easter weekend I went to Painshill Park with my mum. Despite it being close by, I’d never been there before. It’s an 18th century garden that made me feel as if I was a character in an Austen novel.

Unfortunately Mr Darcy did not emerge from this lake to complete the experience!

As well as lovely greenery and a lake, there were buildings to explore and a man-made crystal grotto too:

It was a lovely afternoon out and I would definitely recommend the park to anyone who can make it there!

  1. Oooh I’d love to visit this place! I thought it reminded me of Pride and Prejudice, but there’s some Northanger Abbey going on in that cave-ish looking photo. Eerie rocks. I just finished reading Persuasion so that I’ve now completed her 6 main novels. I’m in the mood for binge watching all the movies now…again.
