Just a heads up if you are planning to visit Jane Austen's home in Chawton...you can walk there, but get good directions first. There are no signs for pedestrians. If you follow the signs for cars, you will end up walking down a highway.
When you come upon the roundabout at Alton Butts, ignore the sign pointing you down the highway and instead, take the street to the right. You will walk down that a ways and finally come to a pedestrian underpass which will take you under the highway. The other side is the village of Chawton. Follow that street a ways and it will take you directly to Chawton Cottage.
It is quite a walk from the train station, but do-able and enjoyable, if you don't get lost like we did!
