It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Georgian townhouse in Bath must have a Jane Austen story to tell…
The Georgian period in Britain (1714-1830), or the long 18th century as it is sometime referred to, covers a time of immense change, socially, politically and economically. As a Georgian house museum, at No.1 Royal Crescent we want to tell stories from throughout this long and fascinating period, from the highs of the mid-18th century to the shifts in society of the early 19th. Using the writings of authors who lived through it is often the most evocative way of exploring such change, and when it comes to Georgian Bath there is one author whose name is always at the top of the list, Jane Austen.
The new Jane Austen tour looks at life in Britain in the 1790s – 1820, (the Regency into Late Georgian period), including when Austen was writing, and for a time living in Bath. Using the rooms of the house as inspiration, passages and conversations from Austen’s novels bring to life the activities that took place in such domestic spaces, as well as questioning the thoughts and feelings of the people who inhabited them. From social climbing to gender inequality, it explores through Austen’s fiction, the facts of what life was like for many of those who would have been visiting, living or working in Georgian Bath as one century ended and new one began.
