Visitor Info

The team at Jane Austen's House are delighted to be able to welcome you to explore this special place. It was in this pretty Hampshire cottage that Jane Austen revised, wrote and had published all six of her treasured novels. Today you can step back in time to 1816 and follow in Jane's footsteps as she composed her books and created her timeless characters, exploring her home, discovering her belongings and wandering in the beautiful cottage garden.
