The Jane Austen Centre is a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane's Bath experience - the effect that living here had on her and her writing.

Jane Austen

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.

The city is still very much as Jane Austen knew it, preserving in its streets, public buildings and townscapes the elegant well-ordered world that she portrays so brilliantly in her novels. Now the pleasure of exploring Jane Austen's Bath can be enhanced by visiting the Jane Austen Centre in Gay Street. Here, in a Georgian town house in the heart of the city, the visitor can find out more about Bath in Jane Austen's time and the importance of Bath in her life and work.

You can find The Jane Austen Centre in the heart of the Georgian Town of Bath between Queen Square and The Circus at:
40 Gay Street, Queens Square, Bath, England, BA1 2NT
