Pride & Prejudice
Join us for a very special guided tour of Jane Austen’s House. In each room, discover objects, paintings and stories that reveal the themes, characters and events of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, Pride & Prejudice.
Walking in Jane Austen’s footsteps, you’ll discover the rooms where Pride & Prejudice was revised and edited, and where Jane Austen read the novel aloud to a neighbour on the very day she received her first copy.
Moving from room to room, you’ll see portraits of people Jane knew who may have inspired characters in the novel, and objects that help the story come to life.
