Jane Austen's Time in Bath

The novelist spent several years living and writing in Bath. In fact, two of her novels are set in the city - Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.

The Jane Austen Centre is located on the same street where she last lived in Bath, and our Georgian building offers a glimpse into how that would have looked in her day.
