4 Must-Visit Places To Go For If You’re A Jane Austen Fan


This marks Jane Austen’s’, our all time favourite British novelist, 200th anniversary since her death. In conjunction with this, the British Airways have selected four places in the UK for travellers from Malaysia to explore ‘Austen land’ as we call it. You’ll be able to visit sites like the Hampshire, Bath, Lyme Regis, and Sheffield as those places have inspired and played an important role in her work and life.

“Jane Austen is one of the greatest novelists in English literature. There is no better way than visiting places that had once played an important role in her life to celebrate her works. We encourage travellers from Malaysia to take advantage of the great fares and create their own trips to remember.” said Vivian Tan-Loh, British Airways’ country manager for Malaysia.

They are offering return flight fares from Kuala Lumpur to London starts from MYR 2,964* for World Traveller economy and MYR 5,407 for World Traveller Plus premium economy class. With their most technologically advanced aircraft Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, you’ll arrive in London early in the afternoon and can easily make a transit onto the metro to begin your Austen journey!

Here’s what you can expect at the four main must-visit spots for Jane Austen fans.

The fictional Chatsworth house located in Pemberley from Pride and Prejudice, where Mr.Darcy resides is actually believed to have been inspired by the picturesque Chatsworth House Bakewell in Derbyshire. Currently, the estate is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire but the public can visit and have a look at its 105 acres of gardens, 30 lavish rooms and one of Europe’s largest collections of art. The country house provided exterior and interiors for Mr. Darcy’s mansion in Pemberley for the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. This place is great if you’re a lover of art!
