Jane Austen lived in this house from 1809 until her death in 1817, during which time she wrote most of her novels.
Jane Austen's House Museum, Hampshire
The building is now a museum containing many items associated with her and her family. There is also a garden with period plant varieties and a learning centre with interactive exhibits.
The museum is host to a range of objects from Austen's life: manuscripts, prints and drawings, furniture, household objects, costume and books. The recently restored Austen's kitchen is also open to the public.
Art Funded works
A George III Mahogany Bureau Bookcase and pair of Hepplewhite armchairs are believed to have been used by Jane Austen. George Hepplewhite was a contemporary of Thomas Chippendale whose guide books for cabinet markers continue to influence furniture design today.
The museum's reference library, containing current and out of print titles covering all aspects of Austen's work, is open to all genuine enquirers. While there are no refreshments served in the house, food and drinks are available in the village and nearby Selborne.
