Jane Austen Lyme Regis Day Trip From Bath
August 30, 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!
