Welcome to the World of Jane Austen

This website features an online magazine containing over 800 articles. You will find articles on every aspect of Jane Austen’s life in Georgian Bath, in addition to her literary work.

It is a compendium of recipes and historical observations. Just a click away you’ll find our wonderful online Giftshop, which is crammed with Austen and Regency themed goodies. There is useful information about the annual September Austen Festival and also the Regency Summer Ball.

The Regency Tearoom at the Centre is open daily for afternoon and cream teas, light lunches, cakes and drinks – and our new favourite, champagne afternoon tea.

We have an extensive Group Visits programme, including walking tours of Georgian and Regency Bath. The publication Regency World magazine, a full colour glossy is available online or from our in-house Giftshop. You will also find an online quiz which is updated every month. The quiz features questions from the real and the fictional Regency era. There is a comprehensive list of Austen and Regency historical related links.

Finally, if you want more, we offer a free monthly E-newsletter. This will keep you up to date with all the news, gossip and celebrities from the world of our favourite author. The Centre, located at 40 Gay Street in Bath is a permanent exhibition. Situated in an original Georgian townhouse, it tells the story of Jane’s Bath experience, including the effect that living here had on her and her writing. Come and meet our costumed ‘character’ guides, and enjoy being shown Bath’s fascinating history and associations with Jane Austen and her family. Jane Austen is perhaps the best known and best loved of Bath’s many famous residents and visitors. She paid two long visits here towards the end of the eighteenth century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home.
