As International Women’s Day invites us to celebrate the achievements of women, Winchester is very proud of one of our literary greats.

Each year thousands of visitors continue to flock to the landmarks of Jane Austen’s life in Winchester and Hampshire’s surrounding countryside to get closer to the ‘real’ Jane Austen.

We’ve picked out some ideas for Austen enthusiasts below both for International Woman’s Day and beyond. Visit her house in Chawton and see the memorial above the place where she was finally laid to rest in Winchester Cathedral.
