Experience Jane’s – and her characters’ – love of nature and the outdoors in 2020.

1 Jan — 31 Dec 2020

A first edition of Pride and Prejudice will be on display in the Reading Room, celebrating Lizzie Bennet’s famous walk through muddy fields. The display will also feature a pair of Regency ladies’ walking boots and pattens, which nineteenth century ladies would wear to keep their feet dry.

For our family visitors, the historic Bakehouse will also feature a new chalkboard for children of all ages to record the wildlife they spot in the garden, encouraging them to keep an eye out for everything from birds, bees and insects to more elusive hedgehogs and bats.
