The Jane Austen Centre


40 Gay Street


Tel: 01225 443000

The Jane Austen Centre is in the heart of the Georgian city of Bath, between the architectural attractions of Queen Square and the Circus, and just a short stroll from Bath Abbey, the Assembly Rooms and the Roman Baths. Come and meet our costumed ‘character’ guides, and enjoy being shown Bath’s fascinating history and its associations with Jane Austen and her family. Here you will find out more about Jane Austen, her time in Bath and how the city shaped her work. You can also dress up in Regency costume, taste Regency-recipe biscuits, sample perfumes from the era, try your hand at writing with a quill and ink, have your photo taken with our world famous waxwork, try our delightful ‘Tea With Mr Darcy’ in the Regency Tea Room, and browse our bespoke Giftshop.
