Jane and John visit Winchester
A walk with Jane Austen and John Keats
 
Winchester Tourist Guides present a walk through Regency Winchester to mark the 200th anniversary of the visit of John Keats to the city in 1819, and of Jane Austen’s death here in 1817, with quotes from their works and letters read by ‘Georgian’ players along the way.  Discover the contrasting wit and wisdom of two of the greatest writers of their day as they give their opinions on life, education, religion, love – and Winchester!
 
‘.. it is the pleasantest Town I ever was in, and has the most recommendations of any,’  John Keats, letter 1819.
 
‘I give you joy of having left Winchester (College).  Now you may own how miserable you were there,’  Jane Austen, letter 1811.
