It seeks out the places she knew and loved, and locates the buildings and landscapes that form the backdrop to her novels, from the secluded countryside of Hampshire to the fashionable Georgian spa town of Bath, Somerset. Following in Jane Austen’s footsteps, we find ourselves in quiet country corners, unspoilt city streets and stunning historic houses.

Every chapter covers a different region and each has lots of travel tips for getting around together with a section listing website links for every attraction covered, so that further research and planning of your own Jane Austen tour, is just a click away. All the information you need is brought together in one place, and as well as being packed with suggestions of places to visit, the guide brings these to life with extracts from Jane’s letters and stories from her life and the lives of her friends and family, as well as the characters that populate her novels. There is a helpful chapter for London based tourists and an extended chapter which is a detailed Bath guide, giving lots of ideas for what to do in Bath which features in so many Jane Austen books. Bath Spa is now recognized as a World Heritage City for its extraordinary architecture, including its Roman Baths, its Medieval Abbey, its Georgian Pump Room and Assembly Rooms, and its stunning Royal Crescent. The guide covers all the famous attractions, from the Hampshire home of Jane Austen to the Jane Austen Centre, but it also discovers less well-known places that were close to Jane’s heart, including the dramatic landscape of the Jurassic Coast and the delightful harbour town of Lyme Regis, where Louisa Musgrove had her disastrous fall on the Cobb. It also reveals many of the places made familiar to us in the television and film adaptations of Jane Austen novels, together with other exquisite historic houses that capture the spirit of the times. Finally, the introduction includes a short Jane Austen biography for anyone wishing for a quick reminder of the key events of her life.
