Days Out: The Jane Austen Centre

The Jane Austen Centre in Bath was originally created with the guidance of local members of the Jane Austen Society and authorities on Jane Austen, Louise Ross and Maggie Lane.

The Exhibition aims to be not only informative but exciting and illuminating. With knowledgeable staff, a lovely period atmosphere, exclusive film starring Adrian Lukis, costume, contemporary exhibits, maps and books.

They have recently added a new section to the exhibition where we allow our visitors to have a go at dressing up using Regency dresses, coats, bonnets, top hats, shawls, fans, reticules and parasols. As you would imagine, it is going down very well and everyone is having a lot of fun. When you visit you must try it yourself!

The centre also has a beautiful waxwork of Jane Austen created by experts using forensic evidence. All in all the Centre is the perfect starting point to an exploration of Jane Austen’s Bath.
