Bath Tourism: Best of Bath

About Bath
珍.奧斯汀過去曾居於巴斯,而這裡也以其寧靜祥和的氣氛與美景聞名。漫步在大街上,彷彿就像置身於珍.奧斯汀所寫的小說場景之中。這座城市裡大約有 5,000 棟建築,雖各有特色,卻也巧妙地融合在一起,引人注目。散步之後,將身體泡進熱呼呼的 Thermae Bath Spa 天然熱泉水中,這曾是克爾特與羅馬人的最愛。

A Trip to Jane Austen's Bath

Bath is on the bucket-list of every Austen superfan, and thanks to many Georgian-era sites and attractions here, it's easy to pretend you've left modern-day U.K. for the pages of "Pride and Prejudice."

  • The Jane Austen Centre
    2,431 reviews
    This center gets mixed reviews for being somewhat pokey and overpriced. But it's still worth coming here to talk to the guides or attend any lecture or event.
  • Theatre Royal Bath
    903 reviews
    Theater was the Netflix of Austen's day, so if you're keen on time-traveling to the 18th century, definitely pay a visit to this local theater to see the current productions and take in an evening of Austen-era entertainment.
  • Thermae Bath Spa
    8,579 reviews
    Visitors to Bath in Austen's time would have certainly "taken the waters" (hence Bath's name). While this spa is quite modern, it still allows you to participate in that ancient tradition.
  • Sally Lunn's Historic Eating House & Museum

    Another tea salon visit? Of course! This one offers a twofer: a historic visit to the oldest house in Bath and a chance to take cream tea with buns—known as the best in the area.
