Set in South West England in the early years of the 19th century ("the summer of 1814"), Persuasion's action begins in the Somerset countryside, around the fictional Kellynch Hall and Uppercross.



Somerset is a hilly, rural county, home to the town of Glastonbury, known for its famous yearly music festival and its associations with the legendary King Arthur.
