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 Austenâ€™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 â€“ and Winchester!
Walks last approximately 90 minutes.
