Jane Austen lived in this house from 1809 until her death in 1817, during which time she wrote most of her novels.

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.


Permanent collection

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.
