Becoming Darcy

Marcel Theroux in Bath

Becoming Darcy

Bath’s reputation as England’s most romantic city is down to its most celebrated resident – Jane Austen, whose novel Pride & Prejudice turns 200 today.

Guardian journalist Marcel Theroux (above) grabs his garters and take us on a delightful stroll up one of England’s many literary heritage trail.

Donning Mr Darcy’s garb and manners, he attends a Regency ball at the Bath Pump Room. But not before a rigorous workout with a dancing master!

And remember gentlemen, it’s all about those calf muscles!

You can watch his lovely 7 minutes video by clicking above.
