Places Filling for 2018 Whitecroft Jane Austen Tour

It is just a couple of months until I will be flying to the UK to participate in the next sold out Whitecroft Jane Austen Tour.  I am so excited!  I have completed my workshop project (it is a secret) and all travel plans are booked.

The itinerary for the next tour 8 - 18 July 2018 is being finalised and Helen Bertram has already received firm bookings with deposits.  If you are contemplating coming with me on this tour, you need to email to secure your place.

I cannot recommend this tour more highly to those interested in quilts, history, literature, textiles, architecture, embroidery, fine art, furniture, gardens and all things English.  The tour is not only for the ladies and gentlemen are also welcome.

You do not need to know lots about Jane Austen, just be happy to absorb yourself in beautiful surroundings in the company of like minded people and be looked after impeccably.  Too easy!

The tour is based for 10 nights in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath.  Helen has added some amazing new places to visit on the 2018 tour.  Very exciting.

Highlights of the itinerary include the following: 

  • *  The Fashion Museum, Bath

  • *  Montacute House, Somerset

  • *  Jane Austen's House, Chawton

  • *  Winchester Cathedral

  • *  Chawton House Library

  • *  Chavenage

  • *  Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire

  • *  Lacock & Lacock Abbey

  • *  Lyme Regis

  • *  Wells Cathedral

  • *  The American Museum in Britain

  • *  Workshop with Katrina Hadjimichael 

We will travel from this base to visit lots of locations associated with Jane Austen, her novels and her era.  

You will see her beautiful quilt at Chawton.


We will visit the residences of some of the Austen relatives.

We will have private tours and information sessions in many wonderful locations.  Here is just a taste of what we will see.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

Here is the group from our 2015 tour, over a year ago now.

If you are interested to join me in 2018, you can send Helen Bertram an email on for further details and to book your place.

You will not be disappointed.
