The area in East Hampshire is home to Jane Austen House Museum in Chawton which is the house where the writer spent the last 8 years of her life.

As I live near Bath which also has a lot of history of Jane Austen and local Jane Austen events due to her writing two of her novels there, I think this looks a great week. I like the look of the regency ball where people will be dressed in regency clothes I would love to get dressed up and have a dance.
