Jane Austen at No.1 Royal Crescent - last Friday of every month and for the duration of the Jane Austen Festival,13th to 22nd Sept.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Georgian townhouse in Bath must have a Jane Austen story to tell. The new Jane Austen tour looks at life in Britain in the 1790s – 1820, (the Regency into Late Georgian period), including when Austen was writing, and for a time living in Bath.
Using the rooms of the house as inspiration, passages and conversations from Austen’s novels bring to life the activities that took place in such domestic spaces, as well as questioning the thoughts and feelings of the people who inhabited them.
Jane Austen in Bath is an immersive experience that runs on a timed loop. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your ticket slot, to ensure you do not miss any of your experience.
