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.
