Real life connectionsEdit

Jane Austen created the town of Sanditon, presumably as a stand-in for one of the many villages that popped up along the English coastline during the Regency era. The villages earned their money by attracting wealthy families who wanted to escape city life and go to the coast for health reasons, as the sea air was believed to work wonders for health. It is unknown which exact village Jane Austen used as her inspiration for Sanditon.
