About this item
It is impossible to fully appreciate Jane Austen without experiencing the landscapes which inspired her. Jane Austen's England - the first book of its kind - takes the reader on a series of walking tours into the very heart of her world. These fifteen picturesque walks describe the country houses, churches, great estates and elegant cities that were the settings for her novels and introduce the reader to the real-life people she met, many of whom became characters in her books. An indispensable guide for all Austen fans, some of the sights include Godmersham House, the inspiration for Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, the view from Box Hill, scene of the 'exploring party' in Emma, Lyme Regis' treacherous Cobb in Persuasion, Bath's Assembly Rooms in Northanger Abbey and many more.
