40 Gay Street
Queens Square

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.

The exhibition was enhanced during 2008 with ’Costumes from BBC’s Miss Austen Regrets featuring the dresses worn by Olivia Williams as Jane Austen. The stunning costumes are the work of BAFTA and EMMY award winning designer Andrea Galer.

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 eighteenth century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home.

You will find The Jane Austen Centre in the heart of the Georgian Town of Bath between Queen Square and The Circus at:
