Jane Austen's England - A Walking Guide
Available from I B Tauris

Today you can still walk in Jane Austen’s footsteps and capture the atmosphere of her world.

The 15 circular walks in the book take you to the country houses, churches, great estates and elegant cities she knew and introduce you to the real-life people she met, many of whom gave her hints for the characters in her novels. The rambles include a splendid view of Godmersham House, the inspiration for Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice and the breathtaking panorama from Box Hill the scene of the ‘exploring party’ in Emma.

Follow the ill-fated visitors from Uppercross in Persuasion to descend the Granny Steps in Lyme Regis and come to Bath to ‘take the waters’ and visit the beautiful Assembly Rooms - frequented by so many of Jane’s characters.

The newly revised and updated book by Anne-Marie Edwards remains the only comprehensive travel guide to Jane Austen’s England.
