Bath: Jane Austen Centre

"The Jane Austen Centre tells the story of the novelist’s life in Bath and its effect on her writing."

In the elegant Georgian city of Bath, The Jane Austen Centre at 40 Gay Street tells the story of the novelist’s life in Bath and its effect on her writing. Meet the costumed actors at the entrance, perhaps the fatherly Mr Bennet from Pride and Prejudice (1813), played by Martin Salter since 2007, or maybe the dashing Captain Frederick Wentworth from Persuasion (1817), played by James Cox. A mannequin of Austen herself stands gazing wistfully down Gay Street. After immersing yourself in Jane Austen’s matrimonially-obsessed world, take a seat at the Regency Tea Rooms.
