The Jane Austen Centre|
40 Gay Street, Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2NT Show on map
Phone: +44 (0)1225 443000
Bath's most famous resident.
The exhibition at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath has been created with the guidance of local members of the Jane Austen Society and authorities on Jane Austen. It aims to be not only informative but exciting and illuminating. With knowledgeable staff, a lovely period atmosphere, exclusive film, costume, contemporary exhibits, maps and books. It is the perfect starting point to an exploration of Jane Austen's Bath.
The Centre at 40 Gay Street in Bath houses a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane's experience in the city between 1801 and 1806 and the effect that living here had on her and her writing. Gay Street is the ideal location for the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, set between two of Bath's architectural masterpieces, Queen Square and the Circus. Jane Austen actually lived in Gay Street (higher up the hill on the same side, at No.25) for some months in 1805.
Your Centre Guide will bring the Jane Austen story to life. Every visit to the Centre begins with a live introductory talk. See exhibits that explore Jane's life in Bath, her family, places of residence and Bath society. Admire elegant reproductions of Regency day and evening wear. Learn about the main entertainments of the day; dancing, socialising, gossiping, card games and tea drinking. At the end of your visit you can relax and reflect for a moment whilst enjoying a pot of real leaf tea and maybe some home made cake upstairs in our award winning Regency Tea Room.
