  • Question 1

    THE JANE AUSTEN CENTRE

    Welcome to Jane Austen Centre. The focus of this exhibition is Jane Austen’s five years living and socialising in Bath – the places she lived in and visited. We hope you enjoy your visit.
    The Jane Austen Centre in Bath at No. 40 Gay Street is a house very similar to No. 25, where Jane Austen lived for a few months following her father’s death. These Georgian town houses in Gay Street were built between 1735 and 1760.
    The houses are alike in design, although this house had a large extension added, during the 20th century, which covers the whole of the garden. It is in this space that the permanent exhibition is placed.
    Within the exhibition are displayed a number of hand-made reproduction period costumes, which have been created using authentic fabrics, in colours contemporary with the period. Refresh yourself during and after your visit at our Tea Rooms and enjoy a pot of real leaf tea, some home-made cakes or a delicious light snack.
    The Centre Giftshop is a treasure of Jane Austen–related gifts, some specially designed for, exclusive to, the Centre. There is a range of writing paper, pens, post cards and high-quality reproduction cards. We have a comprehensive stock of books about Jane Austen, her life, her family and times.

    ANECDOTES

    Text 1. Police in the USA are celebrating the hiphop fashion for wearing pants that are too big. They are reporting that it has become much easier to catch young male suspects because they tend to trip over their own trousers. A policeman from Connecticut even offers some friendly advice to hiphoppers, “When I catch them I tell them they’d do much better if they had pants that fit”.

    Text 2. Brian Capps returned home from a vacation to discover a bizarre robbery. Somebody had stolen his luxury walltowall carpeting but had left his 60inch TV and other appliances untouched. Where his carpet had been there was another carpet that he had not seen before. After reporting the robbery to the police, it turned out that there had been an error at a local flooring company.

    Text 3. Michael Reeves has been fined €300 by Swansea Council for putting a single sheet of paper in a recycling bag designated for glass and tins. It is not the first time that Mr Reeves has infringed the recycling rules. Back in April 2006 Michael put his rubbish out a day early because he was going on holiday. That earned him a warning from the municipal authorities. The last incident also means that now he has a criminal record.

    Text 4. The travel agent’s, Airtours, have been revealing some of the complaints that they have received from UK tourists recently. A customer complained, “I’m never flying to Jamaica with Airtours again. It took us nine hours to get there but it only took the Americans three hours”.
