  • We had such an amazing time! We came to bath for my 18th birthday trip and loved going into the Jane Austen museum. It was so much fun. The staff were so great and friendly. We really loved it...

  • Such a fun experience!! The winning part was the actors who gave us a stunning performance while exampling Janes life. Getting dressed up was a fun time too.

  • A pretty small museum showcasing the short life of this great English novelist. The ticket included a guided session that brought us through Jane Austen’s family and life. The whole session and tour can be completed in less than an hour. The staff on site are all dressed in the same era and are all more than happy to pose for pictures. Great for Jane Austen fans. I really enjoyed it. On the top floor of the building there is a cute little tearoom where you can get English tea and cakes but we had to leave to have lunch somewhere else.
  • We visited this morning. Catherine De Burgh gave us a fabulous tour. Really enjoyed hearing about the life of Jane Austen and her family. I had a lovely stroll in the gardens with Mr Darcy and there was even time for a photo opportunity In costume! The little gift shop was full of all things Jane Austen and we decided to use our 10% off voucher in the lovely and quaint tea room upstairs. Loved every moment of our visit. Thank you so much!
