Winchester celebrates the 200th anniversary of one of the world’s most loved novels, Emma, by Jane Austen
On 13th March, Winchester Cathedral is hosting a special evening remembering Emma.
The Jane Austen Trail brings together the houses and places in Winchester which so inspired Jane, and can be seen in much of her work. They include Steventon, where Jane was born, the house in Chawton (now the Jane Austen House Museum) where Jane lived and wrote, and Winchester Cathedral, her final resting place.
The Trail has been updated to include the ring acquired by Jane Austen’s House Museum after a controversial US auction.
