Jane Austen Centre

Jane Austen lived in Bath for five years and set two novels in the pretty Georgian city, Northanger Abbey & Persuasion. Bath was an important chapter in her life and shaped her life irrevocably, almost ruining her writing career. It was noisy, chaotic, and stifled her capacity to write. Here, she also came to terms with the true quandary of being an unwed woman in Regency England without means to support herself.
