Follow our trail to discover more about Austen's life in Hampshire

On 18 July 1817 Jane Austen died in a house on College Street in Winchester after a short illness. To mark the bicentenary of her death, Hampshire Cultural Trust is bringing together a programme of events across the county that inspired so much of her writing. As her final resting place, Winchester Cathedral is a central landmark of her life.

The Jane Austen trail traces her journey from birth to her death giving you an insight into the life and times of this ‘Hampshire girl.’ Find out why visiting the area is leaving so many Austen readers with a lasting sense of history, place and person.

Visit her house in Chawton and see the memorial above the place where she was finally laid to rest in Winchester Cathedral.
