Historic places to visit in Somerset

Jane Austen Centre

40 Gay Street, Queen Square
Bath BA1 2NT


The Jane Austen Centre at 40 Gay Street in Bath 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 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 18th century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home.
