The Jane Austen Centre
I am a Jane Austen fan so have been here twice. It is small so wont take up much of your day so you will have plenty of time over to enjoy the rest of Bath.
Jane paid two long visits to Bath towards the end of the eighteenth century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home, athough it has to be said she never particularly like the place! It also provides the backdrop to two of her novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, and features in her other novels…

A permanent exhibition situated in a traditional and original Georgian townhouse. The Centre tells the story of Jane’s time in Bath, while also explaining the effect that living in Bath had on her writing and on herself. There are also walking tours of Georgian and Regency Bath.

“These historic Roman baths made the City of Bath what it is today. The hot spring waters filter down from the Mendip Hills where The Lodge is based!”
“An absolute must! set in the centre of Bath, the spa is a great place to go! Steam rooms, treatments, swimming pool, restaurant and roof top pool,this is a personal favourite! booking is essential and personally, the evening slot is great, enabling you to see Bath lit up at night!”
“A fabulous place for breakfast, lunch or a cream tea. Beautiful Georgian surroundings with a Pianist playing in the background. Added bonus of being able to see a Roman Bath with hot springs through the window- on the way to the washrooms! ”
“Until January 2021, hosting Grayson Perry - The Early Years, which is very interesting as long as you are broad minded! Also has collections of the previous Victorian owner including paintings of those who have visited Bath in the past. ”
