I spent a good part of last weekend watching movies based on Austen novels (“Sense & Sensibility”, “Northanger Abbey”) and just general Austen-ophilia (“Lost in Austen”). My falling down the Austen rabbit hole, of course, made me think of Bath, a frequent setting in Austen’s writing (not to mention her own home for a great part of her life). Back in 2006, when I was working out of my firm’s London office, I obviously made time for a weekend day trip out to Bath so that I could see it for myself. Between visiting the baths, the Royal Crescent, and the Jane Austen Centre, I was in Austen heaven. In fact, I barely finished up sightseeing in time to catch the last bus back to London. Still, as someone who has read every one of Austen’s books, it was an awesome trip–100% worth taking.
