The following morning we drove out of Budapest into the countryside, to a village called Pronay. Pronay Castle, just outside the village was where the weekend was to be held.
Sadly I booked too late to get a room in the Castle, but a few of us stayed in a lovely little cottage in the village.
The first night we just had a light supper. It was in a lovely setting but the food was disgusting. I ended up pretty much eating just bread.
The next day we visited Godollo Palace
It was one of the holiday homes of the Austria-Hungarian royal family.
(Me infront of the Palace)
Inside the palace sadly we were only able to take photos of the staircase landing. It had a beautiful ceiling.

Corina - isn't her pelisse gorgeous!!!
After wondering around the gardens we stopped in the tearoom for a cup of tea and a piece of cake. :) The most important part of any visit to a historic building! :)
Claire and Corina in the tearoom, looking very regency!! :)
We drove back to the castle early in the afternoon.
After lunch we had a very interesting costume talk on regency costume and traditional Hungarian costume of the time.
And then later that evening...
Twas a lovely evening. :)
The following day we went back to Budapest, went on a guided tour of the city and then caught a flight home. A whirlwind Regency weekend in Hungary. :)
