The Jane Austen Centre is located in Gay Street where Jane Austen once lived. The permanent exhibition in this Georgian house offers a look at the life and times of Bath's most famous citizen. Staff give regular introductory talks, following which you may browse through the exhibition at your leisure. Settings and costumes illustrate the city in Austen's time, while a video presentation gives glimpses of her daily life and how living in Bath influenced her novels. If you fancy dressing in period costume and posing for the camera, make an appointment for a sitting with the professional photographer. The gift shop offers various Jane Austen souvenirs, books, stationery, lace, cards and gifts.
