The cover story in Sunday's print edition was about "the Downton Abbey effect" and stately home stays that capture the elegance and grandeur of that era. With this in mind, we'd like to hear about a place you have visited where the spirit of an age is palpable. It could be a belle-époque hotel, a 1920s cocktail bar, a Georgian street or a shop that evokes the swinging Sixties, say – or anywhere with a timewarp feel. The reader who sends in the best entry wins a £500 voucher.
