Jane Austen Centre
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The museum is set in a period terraced house, with exhibits of Regency costume, maps, books, and films that bring to life Jane Austen's role in the history of Bath. The Centre also offers regular Jane Austen walks, running year-round.
Bath is such a compact city that walk participants can easily reach many of the settings used by Austen in her novels with a leisurely stroll lasting about 90 minutes. The Centre also holds a popular annual Jane Austen Festival in honour of the novelist.
The Centre is open year-round, and special group tours may be arranged. The centre is wheelchair accessible for the ground floor only.
