All of Jane’s major works passed the walnut table in her Chawton, Hampshire home. It was here that she wrote “Emma,” “Persuasion,” and “Mansfield Park;” and where she revised “Pride and Prejudice,” “Sense and Sensibility,” and “Northanger Abbey.” Jane wrote at the little table every day, scribbling furiously away with a quill and homemade ink.
Wander through Jane’s quaint country home where various exhibits give an intimate peek into her life. The dinner table is set, the beds are made with fresh cotton sheets, and the kitchen is ready for a great meal. It is as if at any moment, Jane could walk in and welcome you to her home. Letters, first editions to Jane’s books, and her last unfinished manuscript “Sanditon” are all on exhibit at the Jane Austen’s House Museum for a one-of-a-kind encounter with the beloved novelist.
