The beautiful Somerset city of Bath is once again preparing to host its annual tribute to perhaps its most famous resident, the authoress Jane Austen.

Running from September 14th-22nd at various local venues, the twelfth Jane Austen Festival is on course to be the biggest instalment of the event so far and is sure to provide a fascinating insight for both existing and new admirers into the life, times and works of the UK’s most widely read female writer.

With highlights set to include a Grand Regency Costumed Promenade, a Masked Ball at the renowned Pump Room (accompanied by a reception held amid the glorious surroundings of the historic Roman Baths), and a number of interactive workshops, the festival really is a must visit for anyone interested in either classic literature or the Regency period.

If you have been considering booking a holiday for later this year at one of the many picturesque English country cottages currently available, why not choose a location in or close to Bath so that you can also enjoy this much loved literary festival and experience the World Heritage Site city at its finest?
