Gravel Walk Bath

A short stroll from the Jane Austen Centre on Gay Street is Gravel Walk, just off Queen's Parade Place in Bath.

Known as something of a Lover's Lane in Jane Austen's day, the path was a route for sedan chairs heading to and from the town centre and following the path will take you almost into Victoria Park behind The Circus and The Royal Crescent, with fine views of the backs of houses and their gardens on Gay Street.

Gravel Walk is the setting for a love scene between Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth in Austen's novel Persuasion.
