The Jane Austen Tour of Bath will feature Jane’s visits to Bath, and five years of residence from 1801-1806 in the city of Bath, with reference to her two ‘Bath novels’ – Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. The tour will focus on what she and her characters got up to and where within the city.
The tour is also a great way to see Bath as your expert local guide shows the main attractions of this beautiful Georgian city.
Your guide can meet you at your hotel or other location in central Bath. Your Jane Austen Tour of Bath can also start or finish at the Jane Austen Centre (additional charge; free entry to Gift Shop/Tea Room) or Bath Abbey (voluntary donation optional), subject to your schedule.
In this two hour walk, you will visit as many of the principal Jane sites as possible, including the Pump Room, Bathing Establishments, Pulteney Bridge, Great Pulteney Street, Queen Square, the Circus, the Royal Crescent and Gravel Walk, as well as (subject to availability, as it is a working building) the interior of the Assembly Rooms. Many locations you will also recognise from some of the many screen adaptations of her novels.
Here you can see where Jane, her beloved sister Cassandra and family lived. You will also see Bath’s version of London’s Little Venice and other unusual sights, including a pub which was operating whilst Jane lived in the city.
There will be plenty of time during our tour for you to ask questions on present-day Bath, shopping, eating and drinking or whatever you wish to know), as well as discuss special interests or enthusiasms.
Your guide is a Jane Austen enthusiast and has a lifelong enthusiasm for the architectural and social history of Bath.
