Jane Austen Lyme Regis Day Trip From Bath

May 24, 2015 @ 7:45 am - 6:00 pm

£55

A wonderful opportunity to meet Diana Shervington, or her daughter
Caroline, who grew up at Chawton House and whose great, great, great,
grand-aunt was Jane Austen. On this special Lyme Regis Tour we retrace
the Austen family footsteps around Jane’s favourite holiday spot.
The tour includes museum visit and cream tea on what will be the 211th
year since her last visit. This historic and wonderful seaside resort
is the setting for one of the most dramatic scenes in the novel
Persuasion.

As part of this day trip there will be a guided walk of Lyme Regis.

Jane Austen visited Lyme Regis in England on at least two separate
occasions and set Persuasion, her last novel, in the town. On the Jane
Austen tour we follow in the footsteps of Austen and her characters
around Lyme Regis.

Walk along the Cobb to see the steps from which Louisa Musgrove fell
on the famous harbour wall and visit the inns mentioned in Persuasion.
On the Jane Austen tour we see the house in which she stayed and enjoy
the pleasure of Lyme Regis’s views, knowing that you are seeing the
same sights as Jane Austen saw and loved.

This tour is brought to you by the same company as provides the
daytrip to Lyme Regis for the Jane Austen Festival. Quality & fun
guaranteed!

Your tour guide, Literary Lyme Walking Tours, has also worked with,
the Jane Austen Society, Jane Austen Society of North America, Jane
Austen Society of the Netherlands, BBC, Victoria Connelly (author),
