Virtual ‘Emma’ TourYou are cordially invited to join us for a very special virtual guided tour of Jane Austen’s House, exploring the story behind 'Emma' - often regarded as the perfect English novel.
Saturday 18 June
6:00pm — 7:00pm
‘I have none of the usual inducements of women to marry. Were I to fall in love, indeed, it would be a different thing! but I never have been in love; it is not my way, or my nature; and I do not think I ever shall.’
Join us for a unique virtual guided tour of Jane Austen’s House. Following in Jane’s footsteps, we’ll explore the rooms where Emma was written and learn about her inspirations for the novel.
We’ll also take a close look at one of our first editions of Emma, hear the story of the novel’s publication and Jane Austen’s dedication to the Prince Regent, and examine her correspondence with the Royal librarian.
This light-hearted and enjoyable virtual tour shines a light on objects and stories that relate to Jane Austen’s classic novel; it offers the opportunity to examine and enjoy Emma, and to experience Jane Austen’s House and collection in a new way.
With plenty of time to ask questions, this is a unique opportunity to to indulge our love of the well-meaning but misguided heroine of whom Jane Austen famously declared ‘no one but myself will much like’.
