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. We’ve now installed an especially commissioned wax work of Jane Austen that is wowing our visitors.

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.
