A room-by-room tour of Jane Austen’s final home

Lovers of ‘Pride and Prejudice’… rejoice! In this video, we step into the author’s world, taking a virtual trip to the Jane Austen House and Museum, located in Chawton, Hampshire.

The cultural landmark offers visitors a fascinating glimpse into the latter part of Austen’s life, which is when she called the residence her home.

The museum houses many of the author’s personal possessions – including the famous writing desk at which she wrote her novels: ‘Northanger Abbey’, ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Mansfield Park’, ‘Emma’, ‘Persuasion’ and, of course, the aforementioned tale of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy.

There’s also a full room-by-room tour of the house, itself, revealing the most compelling stories and features of Chawton Cottage, as they relate to the Regency England novelist’s time there.
