1 min

The Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel honored Jane Austen on the bicentenary of her death last July.

On July 18 1817, Jane Austen disappeared. According to the legend, she wrote part of her novel Emma during a stay in the Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel... To remember her, the establishment offered a "Jane Austen Experience".

A walk through time

From 12 July to 10 September last year, the Dorkin hotel proposed an immersion in the writer’s universe. To do: a themed afternoon tea, a walking map designed to explore Box Hill’s rich literary history and an access to a library of key novels and fiction books available in the hotel’s reception.

A place of inspiration

The four-star paradise of 57 rooms offers you a breath of fresh air in the North Downs in the South East of England. A sudden urge to swim around with a view of a country landscape? The heated outdoor swimming pool is waiting for you. 

With its 760-year-old history, the Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel has always been a haven of inspiration for writers.
