The Landmark Trust is opening Elton House in association with the second weekend of Heritage Open Days and Jane Austen Festival.
Elton House overlooks Abbey Green near the remains of the medieval priory, right in the centre of Bath. The earliest part of it dates from just before 1700, but it was subsequently enlarged and refronted by Elizabeth and Jacob Elton, when they purchased the lease from the Duke of Kingston. It was enlarged to provide lodgings for visitors wishing to take the waters. By 1750, it had become a handsome robust building on several floors, with a fine staircase and excellent joinery, arranged as sets of lodgings to accommodate the affluent Georgians who flocked annually to Bath.
Entrance will be granted on a free timed ticket that you can get from the entrance of the building on the day.
