Oil painting of Queen Charlotte (by Studio of Allan Ramsay, who painted this portrait)
1870 engraving of Jane Austen, based on a portrait drawn by her sister Cassandra.
The Orangery was built, together with the main residence, between 1811 to 1816 for Queen Charlotte and King George III. Queen Charlotte stayed at the residence several times during 1817.
And where better, after a round of sightseeing, than to stay in the very street Jane Austen herself resided when she lived in Bath.
