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.

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.

    Just a mild suggestion: in the final paragraph of ‘Meet the Jane Austen staff’ you have:

    The ‘it’s’ in the fist line should be ‘its’.

    I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the _Pride and Prejudice_ reading on Monday; thanks to all involved for a delightful (if longer than anticipated) event.

    Good Afternoon.
    I am bringing a Russian visitor to the Jane Austen center and on the walking tour next Saturday.
    I want to make sure she gets the most she can out of the visit.
    As her English is not very good I need to know if you have any Russian translations or give me some information that I can prepare for her. I can share this once completed.

    Good morning,
    I am bringing my parents to Bath in a couple of weeks, but they are both a little wobbly on their legs. Is the walking tour on flat even ground and at a comfortable leisurely pace? Thank you.
