Hidden Britain Tours

About

Hidden Britain Tours offer three full-day, Hampshire tours, the most popular of which is the Jane Austen Dancing Years Tour. Visit her birthplace, the “cradle of her genius”, the church where her father was rector and trace the people she mentions in her letters in beautiful Hampshire villages and churches. See the country houses where she danced and fell in and out of love.

Travel in a people carrier with Phil Howe, who tells the stories and gossip of the late 1700’s that clearly informed her as a young girl, woman and  author. An essential tour for anyone wanting to know more about Jane Austen’s formative years. On the tour you'll have lunch in a country inn, and then visit the Jane Austen’s House Museum at Chawton where she spent her last years.  A must for any Janeite!

Hidden Britain's other small group tours are the Downton Abbey & Watership Down Tour and Hidden Hampshire Tour.

All three tours offer visitors an opportunity to see places often missed or overlooked in larger group tours. They are particularly popular as day trips out of London, for people who live in this area who have visitors they would like to entertain, or as a special gift for a fan of Jane Austen.

For more information please call Hidden Britain Tours or visit their website.
