'Bath and Bristol are rich in Jane Austen associations, both biographical and fictional. She visited Bath twice in the 1790s and was resident there from 1801 to 1806. The City is mentioned in each of her six novels and forms the setting for a large part of both Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Jane Austen stayed in Bristol at least once, in 1806. It features in the Juvenilia (Lesley Castle), which may indicate an earlier visit. In Northanger Abbey, some of the characters set off to visit Blaise Castle, in Bristol. Mrs Elton in Emma comes from Bristol. Jane Austen's parents married in Bath at Old St Swithin's (not the present church), and her father was also buried there. There is a plaque on 4 Sydney Place, the Austens' home for the first three years of their Bath life, and many streets and buildings familiar from the novels may still be seen.'
