Visit Jane Austen’s House in the Hampshire village of Chawton and discover the world’s best loved novelist. It was in this picturesque cottage that Jane Austen’s genius flourished and where she wrote, revised, and had published all six of her treasured novels, including the timeless Pride and Prejudice.

Today visitors can step back in time to 1816 and follow in Jane’s footsteps, exploring the home and garden that Jane knew and loved, uncovering the story of her life and times, and getting up-close to objects from the museum’s unparalleled Austen collection, including Jane’s letters, jewellery and the little table at which she wrote her much loved novels.
