    At the Jane Austen Centre, one of the top attractions in Bath

    Jul022010

    I spent a good chunk of the morning at the Jane Austen Centre, one of the top attractions in Bath, as it’s where I recorded my third and final podcast interview for the Only in Bath podcast.

    Before I recorded that, I met Moira from the Centre who was telling about the free Mayor’s Guides tours that run a couple of times a day. They’re a great budget tip and I’m hoping I can catch one before I leave Bath tomorrow.

    Donna, the Manager at the Centre, recorded the podcast for me and it was clear to see that she loves all things Austen. Once we were done, it was up to the fist floor of the museum where I heard an introductory talk about Jane Austen’s life, her time in Bath and some of her most famous works. Then it was down to the ground floor where I wandered around and looked at some of the period dresses they have on display along with the other exhibits.

    Having enjoyed this so much, I thought I’d make it a museum morning so after the Jane Austen Centre, I visited the Fashion Museum, the Victoria Art Gallery and the William Herschel Museum of Astronomy (where Herschel discovered Uranus!), and all three are well worth a look. Then it was time for lunch!
