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.

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 Assemmbly Rooms in Northanger Abbey and many more.
