‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.’
Pride & Prejudice
The final event of our Anniversary Weekend, commemorating Jane Austen’s death 205 years ago, is a very special virtual 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.
Together, we’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. We’ll examine portraits of people Jane knew who may have inspired characters in the novel, and objects that help the story come to life.
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 Pride & Prejudice, and to experience Jane Austen’s House and collection in a new way.
