    Discover a permanent exhibition that tells the story of Bath's most famous resident, the author Jane Austen, at the Jane Austen Center. Explore the effect that living in the Georgian city had on her life and writing. Costumed guides will take you through the exhibition and be on hand to satisfy your quest for knowledge of all things Austen. Taste some period-recipe food, dress up in Regency costume, and have your photo taken with the world famous Jane Austen waxwork. There is a delightful gift shop on the ground floor, which sells unique items bespoke to the Jane Austen Centre, and a delicious Regency Tea Room on the 2nd floor, which offers 17 varieties of leafed tea to go with locally baked cakes. The guided tour runs every 30-minutes.

    The guide that gave the talk was friendly, well informed and funny but all of the staff seemed to be friendly and were helpful in directing people to other places connected with Jane Austen. Would recommend to anyone interested in Jane Austen

  • Bath: Ghost Hunters Silent Disco Guided Tour

    3. Bath: Ghost Hunters Silent Disco Guided Tour

    Discover the scary side of the historic city Bath, giving you a glimpse into the secrets that lurk behind closed doors with some spooky tunes along the way. Start the tour at Bath Ale House and get kitted out with high-tech headphones. Wearing these will mean that you can hear both the music and the fascinating story of a nameless ghost hunter and their untimely death. In the 1980s, a young ghost hunter came to Bath to document all its restless residents. Sadly, their work was never completed due to their mysterious death. The only certainty that they existed at all is in the two items they left behind: a folder full of their unfinished research notes, and their Walkman, still loaded with the mixtape they were listening to at the time. Follow in their footsteps through the streets of Bath and dance — possibly for your life — to finish the job they started all those years ago. If you ar...

My experience at the Jane Austen Centre was absolutely fabulous. I was already lucky enough to be in Bath for the Jane Austen Festival so expectations was high.. Right at the start the actors at the centre were all brilliant, a special shout out to Mr Wickham who was a fabulous rake from start to finish.... The centre itself was great and packed with loads of information on Jane and the Austen family.

My friend and I had a fantastic time at Jane Austen museum. The staff we very friendly and informative. We had great fun trying the period clothes on and having photos of Mr Darcy. Highly recommend this place if ur into reading famous authors books.

The guide that gave the talk was friendly, well informed and funny but all of the staff seemed to be friendly and were helpful in directing people to other places connected with Jane Austen. Would recommend to anyone interested in Jane Austen
