Jane Austen's Bath

Warning

The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

Jane Austen's Bath exhibition lets us see the real places where Austen lived in Bath. Our unrivalled collection of Bath prints and watercolours have been used to illuminate the story of where Austen's characters met, flirted and fell in love and give us an insight into life and culture in Austen's day.

Visitors can see the Bath that Austen saw on her visits here, and experience the sights, sounds and places so vividly depicted in her novels Persuasion and Northanger Abbey.

Highlights include several manuscripts and two letters written to her sister, Cassandra, borrowed from Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton. The first was sent from Bath, in which Jane describes her social life here, and the second from Bond Street in London. The exhibition also features a hand-written poem by Jane and period accessories, including gloves and an umbrella.
