Fan Sites

  • Romance of the Written Word
    A good range of material. Heavy emphasis on fan fiction. Also links to related sites.
  • Austen's Letters
    Nice, but doesn't indicate where the quotations are taken from. Fine for browsing.


  • Jane Austen's Bath
    An excellent tourism site for the city of Bath. Great page layout. Includes six walks with accompanying maps.
  • Hampshire - Jane Austen Country
    Tourism site for Hampshire county. Easily navigated with good internal site consistency.
  • Chawton House and the International Centre for the Study of English Women's Writing
    Much more than a tourist site, contains fascinating information about the collection of rare works by early women writers soon to be available for study at Chawton House: the English country house which once belonged to Austen's brother, and where she was a frequent visitor during the years she lived in her cottage ("Jane Austen's House") at Chawton.
