The Centre

The Centre, located at 40 Gay Street in Bath is a permanent exhibition. It tells the story of Jane’s Bath experience – the effect that living here had on her and her writing. If you are wondering what to do in Bath read this. The Centre organises walking tours, an annual Austen Festival and Group Visits. Come and see our costumed guides. 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.
