Jane Austen, like fellow writers Horace Walpole and Thomas Grey, was drawn to Netley Abbey to gain inspiration from its Gothic ruins, and in the hope of paranormal experiences. Find out how Netley inspired the Gothic novel on a visit to one of the 18th century’s top visitor attractions.

This is a 90 minute walk around the ruins of Netley Abbey in Netley Village in the company of your knowledgeable Hamble Valley Heritage Guide. 

This is part of the Southampton Jane Austen Festival - The Stinking Fish of Southampton
