Strictly Jane Austen

Who can ever tire of Bath?

Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath?  wrote Jane Austen in her novel Northanger Abbey.

And we could not agree more! Bath is our hometown and we love welcoming people from all over the world! From Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Iceland, China, Canada, and the USA, we have organised bespoke Jane Austen experiences for groups and individuals for nearly ten years. We are always happy to arrange special visits to hidden gems in and around Bath, as well as arranging to meet local Jane Austen experts. We really enjoyed assisting the Austrian Broadcasting Corp and welcoming Julia Reuter.

Julia Reuter is a radio editor from Vienna and, while she was researching a documentary about Jane Austen and her novel Pride and Prejudice for the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF), she came to Bath to find out more about Jane’s time in the city and the impact it had on her writing. She joined one of our expert guides for a fascinating walking tour.

“My tour guide was very knowledgeable in everything regarding Bath and the 19th century novelist and together we went walking in her footsteps. We sauntered along Great Pulteney Street to Jane’s home at no. 4 Sidney Place, took a stroll in Sidney Gardens as she once did, promenaded round the iconic Circus and Royal Crescent, took tea Georgian style at The Pump Rooms and visited The Assembly Rooms where Jane went to dance and used as a setting in Northanger Abbey.

The tour lasted three hours and Jane was quite right, you never do get tired of the beautiful city of Bath!”

Julia’s radio programme aired in May 2019.
