Bath, how the Georgian city influenced and inspired Jane Austen

Jane Austen lived in Bath over a period of five years in her twenties. We asked Dr. Gabrielle Malcolm, author of  Fan Phenomena: Jane Austen, There’s Something About Darcy, to tell us about the influence the city had on the woman and her writings

Bath, Bridgerton & Jane Austen

Bridgerton, Netflix’s smash-hit series based on the novels by Julia Quinn, depicts Regency England as a place of romance, scandal and the fashionable elite. Set in 1813, the same year that Jane Austen’s novel Pride & Prejudice was published, and partly filmed in Bath, our guest blogger and Austen expert Christine Hughes wonders whether Jane would have recognised the settings, fashions and social mores in this fantasy version of Regency England?
