Georgians At Home
Joe, the Footman is talking to Jenkins, the Valet after a long day of work. The footman is heading outside to deliver a letter and he talks about how amazing Bath is and how many people have travelled here for the season. As you leave the museum don’t forget to take a photo with the sedan chair outside the shop door! This is what a lot of rich people would have travelled in to get around the city, carried by two very strong servants.
Have a look at the panels to discover even more places in Bath to explore that are in Jane Austen’s books, can you find them all? Why not take a promenade along the Royal Crescent just like people did 200 years ago and imagine who might have lived in these houses!
