The Jane Austen staff work at the Centre at 40 Gay Street in Bath. The Centre houses a permanent exhibition telling 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 built by John Wood the Elder and completed by his son John Wood the Younger.
Enjoying a taste of Georgian England
Jane Austen actually lived in Gay Street (higher up the hill on the same side, at No.25) for some months in 1805.
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.
