Austen is Britain’s finest literary heroine, and for many Bath embodies the best of her Regency world. But she seems to have loathed the place:
“For six weeks, I allow, Bath is pleasant enough; but beyond that, it is the most tiresome place in the world. You would be told so by people of all descriptions, who come regularly every winter, lengthen their six weeks into 10 or 12, and go away at last because they can afford to stay no longer.”
Join us for a literary walk around Bath and discover what prompted Jane’s complicated relationship with the city. We will meet for coffee and cake in the Bookshop at 9:30am, and set out at 10.00am.
