Discover 12 Jane Austen quotes in locations on the streets across Winchester city centre to mark Jane Austen 200 – Hampshire’s year of celebration remembering the bicentenary of the author’s death. 

When the quotes are worn from footfall they will disappear – a fleeting tribute to an author whose life was cut short too young.

A final quote is installed temporarily in the College Street garden opposite the house where she died on a living wall of ivy.

Jane Austen, one of the world's most famous authors, spent most of her life in the historic and beautiful county of Hampshire. Its houses, countryside and people provided the inspiration for many of her novels.

2017 will mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, and Hampshire Cultural Trust is working with Jane Austen’s House Museum and many other partners across the county to celebrate Jane’s creativity and talent.
