What is fantastic for Jane Austen fans is that Bath is now almost as it was when Jane Austen lived here.
The houses where she lived and the settings for the novels ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Persuasion’ can all still be seen within a mile radius of the Jane Austen Centre. Bath is such a compact city where the primary way to get about is via a leisurely stroll on foot at a gently pace. You can see so much more than if you took a ride on an open top bus. Our guides know the city intimately and all of the places where Jane lived, walked and shopped. At points on the walk they will enliven the tour with appropriate quotes from the novels and letters. So, why not let one of our experienced Centre guides take you to all of these places.
All year Saturday and Sunday and Bank holidays. Not Christmas.
All tours start at 11.00am and begin from outside KC Change Visitor Information Centre in Abbey Churchyard. Tours last 1½ hours. (See Map)
Adults £9.00 – Children/Concessions £7.00
Group Walking Tours
There is nothing that our specialist walking tour guides like better than to show off our beautiful Georgian city to interested visitors. Let us take you to places mentioned in Jane Austen’s letters and her novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Perhaps a more general history of Bath is required; whatever your group’s wishes we have the tour for you. With our private walks you can specify the focus, time and duration of the tour to suit your group and schedule.
