As the film and television industry continues to delight us with exquisitely shot Jane Austen adaptations, the question of who the woman behind the novels actually was becomes ever more intriguing. Maybe that’s why each year thousands of visitors continue to flock to the landmarks of her life in Winchester and Hampshire’s surrounding countryside to get closer to the ‘real’ Jane Austen.

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.
