Gay Street Promenade


Number 25 Gay Street turned out to be the final and poorest lodgings of Jane Austen, her sister Cassandra and their mother, following the death of Mr Austen in 1805.

Describing herself as a “desperate walker”, Jane had been delighted to find the penguin an agreeable companion as anxious to escape the heat and confinement of their small rooms as she was.

“Gay Street Promenade” illustrates these two friends taking a stroll towards the Royal Circus and thence along Brock Street in search of the magnificent views over Bath from the Royal Crescent.
