Bring along your Mr. Darcy or Miss Bennet, and join us for a Valentine-themed tour of Gore Place, inspired by Jane Austen's romantic novels.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that this is one of the great New England house tours! Our costumed guides will lead you through the candle-lit rooms of the 1806 Gore mansion, where you'll marvel at the graceful curve of the Great Stairs, the lovely Oval Withdrawing Room, the Office, the Peacock Parlor, and the Great Hall. Along the way, your guide will use the words of the author Jane Austen to describe life and romance in an early 19th-century country estate.
You'll also receive a box of chocolates from our friends at Tick Tock Chocolates of Waltham, MA to enjoy after this Austen-tatious tour, included in the price of admission.
Regency or Federal period costumes are encouraged!
