‘No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be an heroine…’
Join us online for 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 youthful, spoof-Gothic novel, Northanger Abbey.
Together, we’ll discover the rooms where Northanger Abbey was revised and edited, and follow Jane’s creative journey from first draft to final publication. We’ll examine items of furniture that populated her childhood home, books that she was inspired by, portraits of people she knew 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 Northanger Abbey, and to experience Jane Austen’s House and collection in a new way.
