Celebrate 200 years of Pride and Prejudice with a walk in Jane Austen’s footsteps

 On 29 January 1813, Jane Austen wrote to her sister Cassandra to tell her the good news that Pride and Prejudice, which was to become her most famous novel, had been published. 200 years later, the book is still considered by many to be one of the best books ever written and has been adapted for TV and film and translated into many languages for audiences around the world. The book’s opening line is perhaps the most famous from any nineteenth-century novel: "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

Jane austen walkCelebrate the bi-centenary with a visit to the village where Jane wrote the book, Chawton in Hampshire. The 5 mile circular iFootpath walk, ‘From Chawton in the Footsteps of Jane Austen’, begins outside Jane’s former home which now houses a museum in her memory. The route explores the stunning local countryside, part of the South Downs National Park, following footpaths that Jane herself regularly walked with her sister Cassandra.
