Even though the renowned British author Jane Austen only lived in Bath from 1801 to 1806 and never liked it much, she is often associated with the quaint city.
Bath is located just under 100 miles from London in southwest England, making for a perfect day-trip excursion.
The city is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, so even if you aren’t an Austen fan, there are plenty of cultural attractions to keep you entertained, including the famous Roman Baths.
The Jane Austin Centre (40 Gay St.) is a permanent exhibition paying homage to her life and writing. Two of her works, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, are set mainly in Bath.
