From Pemberley to Jane Eyre, discovering the landscapes which inspired England’s greatest writers
We read a landscape through the eyes of authors, and the words and stories of their greatest characters stay with us as we encounter those landscapes ourselves.
On this journey from the South to the North of England, we visit elegant towns, timeless villages and rugged uplands, travelling in the footsteps of Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters through England’s most outstanding landscapes, and experience how the spirit of these inspiring places drove their creativity.
You will peep into their homes, from humble cottages to grand houses, from tranquil rural idyll to the wild intensity of the Yorkshire moors – and find powerful new insights and associations with familiar works.
At each location enjoy distinctive rural heritage, folk customs and celebrated regional foods, from Dorset cider, to Grasmere gingerbread. Share your journey with expert guides who share their insights and passions and favourite readings from selected works bringing each location to life in the words of the author.
