A wonderful chance for Jane Austen fans to discover key places associated with the life of the world-famous author, from her home at Chawton to her last resting place at Winchester. Enjoy the two houses in Chawton; the cottage in which she lived during her most creative years and Chawton House – home of her brother Edward Austen Knight which many believe gave her the inspiration for Donwell Abbey in Emma. Chawton’s churchyard has a bronze statue of Jane; her mother and sister are buried there.
