Join exhibition curator Emma Yandle for a tour of our current exhibition Trailblazers: Women travel writers and the exchange of knowledge.  

Bringing together Chawton House’s collection of works by women writers, with loans from archives and museums across the country, Trailblazers offers a unique opportunity to explore the fascinating stories of the women who travelled the world in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Explore the lives and writings of five trailblazing women and discover how they journeyed across countries as varied as Turkey, Syria, Sweden, Brazil, Chile and Revolutionary France and communicated new knowledge in their writings.
