After visiting Kentchurch Court for a Phil Rickman book signing event I was very keen to read this book, I also remembered the TV show. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, would love to see the TV series again and can really recommend the wonderful Kentchurch Court - tea there was superb!

This book not only goes behind the scenes of the upcoming TV show on Channel 4 but also provides a detailed and accurate account of the time in which the TV show is set, the Regency Period. Packed with interesting photo's and drawings both of reality and the show the book is a must for any historian or fan of this type of show.

I am a huge fan of all the history and recreation books and have read them all! This was very interesting in capturing a snapshot in time and all the history elements that went with it made it very enjoyable. Having said that, it was not as insightful or interesting as some of the other books such as 1900 house etc but still very good. A lovely book to eat with chocolates one afternoon!

Not as good as the Manor House Companion but worth having 23 Oct. 2011
By Jill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Though I didn't care that much for this particular "House" program, I'm very interested in the Regency era and thought the companion book would be useful, as I'd found the Manor House companion book to be terrific. I found though that this book was not as informative about the Regency era in general as the Manor House companion book is about the Edwardian era in general. The Regency House Party companion book focuses more on the show, the participants and their experiences, which would be of high interest I should think to fans of the program. There is still enough general information about the Regency to please me, and the pictures are lovely, so I'm happy to have the book, especially for such a bargain price. I would like to have seen more stills of the interiors, and the work that went into transforming them back to the Regency period (did the owner keep some of the changes afterward?) as well as more descriptions of the costumes and how they came by them - some I gather are from past Jane Austen adaptations.

Great book! 30 Jan. 2013
By R.Geyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this book because it has great insight into the world of the Regency. I very much enjoyed reading about how the team was able to recreate the style and feel of a country estate, from the decor to the food and even the well-trained staff.
