Northanger Abbey: the episodes in Bath

previous / next


Catherine Morland lived in Great Pulteney Street. As befits a novel in which the architectural background with its various styles is significant, this impressive neoclassical avenue forms the setting of her frequent walks towards the older part of Bath to meet her friends, and of many chance encounters with them, before she sets out for the gothic Northanger Abbey.

The social life of the novel is evoked in the film based on it.
