Jane Austen Day - POSTPONED

Welcome to Bournemouth & East Dorset
Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 10:00

One of the world's most famous authors spent most of her life in the historic and beautiful county of Hampshire.

This trip has been POSTPONED due to Government advice re Coronovirus.

We will re-arrange the trip to be included in next year's programme.

Hampshire was not only the birthplace of Jane Austen, but its people and the society in which she moved, provided inspiration for many of her novels, classics as Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park and Sense and Sensibility.

Known for proudly reminding people that she was “a Hampshire born Austen”, Jane was finally laid to rest in Winchester Cathedral, in 1817 - at the age of just 41.
