People visit the magnificent city of Bath for many reasons, whether it’s to take in the city’s extensive history or to sample one of the therapeutic spa breaks in Bath while staying in a local b and b in Bath during their city break. For some visitors, it’s to experience a city which is famous for being home to Jane Austen and that was influential in some of her books.
The highly-acclaimed and much-loved English romantic novelist Jane Austen is undoubtedly one of Bath’s most famous former residents. During Ms. Austen’s time in Bath, she used the city for research and inspiration, setting two of her later novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, in the city.
To celebrate her works, the characters from her books and the life and times of Ms. Austen, Bath’s Jane Austen Centre is now offering a free iPhone app that will allow fans of the much loved female novelist to have a daily fix of their favourite quotes from her books.
