Tips from locals
The ultimate treat for Jane Austen fans! With the Centre's thought of detail, you will easily imagine daily life in the Regency period.
The Jane Austen Centre at 40 Gay Street in Bath, Somerset, England, is a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane Austen's Bath experience – the effect that visiting and living in the city had on her and her writing.
A must see if you’re a fan! And watch out for the Jane Austen Festival held in Bath in September (13-22 September 2019).

“The Pump Room was where high society used to go for afternoon tea and to be seen about town. A favourite haunt of Jane herself, it also features in Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. The Pump Room Restaurant today is still a hugely popular place for afternoon tea or lunch. You can also have a glass of Bath’s very own thermal waters straight from the fountain, for which many visitors travel from afar to benefit from its many healing properties.”

“Bath's most famous eating house. Their menu offers historic refreshment based on the original Sally Lunn bun – still baked to a secret recipe – and rich in local cuisine and authentic historic dishes. Step back in time and enjoy breakfast in one of the oldest houses in Bath, built in 1680. (Make sure you catch the museum under the restaurant)”
