Experience for yourself the countryside that inspired Jane Austen to pen some of the English language’s greatest novels. Visit her cottage home at Chawton, now open as a museum. It was in this quaint village that Jane spent the majority of her later years and where she wrote or completed most of her most famous works, Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice amongst others. Once inside the house, be immersed in her world. See the village itself and the cottage gardens that Jane and her sister lovingly tended.
Enjoy a guided walking tour of Winchester, the original Saxon capital of England, an introduction to the general highlights including the ‘King Arthur’ connections and England’s oldest public schools. You’ll also have some free time to explore as you choose.
Pay your respects at Jane Austen’s final resting place inside Winchester Cathedral and discover its over 1000 years of history, one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in Europe. Here you can also see the Morley Library, a beautiful 17th-century collection of rare books, and the 12th Century Winchester Bible.
