Literary-lovers can step back in time to Regency England this autumn on Country Living's exclusive trip to Bath with TV historian Lucy Worsley.

During the incredible break, you'll explore the city and countryside that inspired many of Jane Austen’s novels.


From Pride And Prejudice and Emma to Sense And Sensibility and MansfieldPark, Austen’s romantic fiction continues to captivate, and on this tour, you’ll get a fresh perspective on her work from one of our favourite historians.

Lucy Worsley, who is the author of Jane Austen At Home: A Biography, will join you on the three-day break in October.

Austen lived in Bath between 1801 and 1806, and Lucy will give a fascinating talk about the places that mattered to her, many of which you’ll have the chance to visit.

Plus, Lucy will join you at the Jane Austen Centre, which is set in a classically decorated Bath townhouse and has guides in period costumes, and on a literary-themed walking tour of the city.

You’ll also see Jane Austen’s House in Chawton, Hampshire, where she wrote her six major novels, as well as Chawton House, which was once owned by Austen’s brother, Edward, and referred to in her letters as the ‘Great House’.
