Jane Austen in London

Jane Austen in Love

An online version of our autumn/winter exhibition, exploring Jane’s relationship with the dashing young Irishman Tom Lefroy. This exhibition brings together for the very first time Tom’s portrait with Jane’s letter in which she declares ‘I am to flirt my last with Tom Lefroy’.
