Meet the Host, Jane Austen's House
Jane Austen’s House in Chawton, Hampshire, was Jane Austen's final home. She lived here for the last eight years of her life, from July 1798 until May 1817. In this house her genius flourished, as she revised, wrote and published her six extraordinary novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.
Today, Jane Austen’s House is a Grade I listed building, an accredited Museum, and one of the most important literary sites in the world. It holds an important collection of objects associated with Jane Austen, including her jewellery, first editions of her books, furniture, textiles and the table at which she wrote her much-loved novels.
