Jane Austen - Dartford

The Bull and George Hotel Jane Austen - Dartford
Inscription

{Above the coat of arms of Dartford Borough Council:}
Jane Austen, 1775 - 1817, noted novelist. Jane Austen stayed at the former inn on this site, The Bull and George, when travelling to visit her brother in Canterbury.

We'd guess that this plaque is based on a letter that Jane wrote from here.
