About Jane Austen's House

Jane Austen's ring is now on display at the Museum.

We are pleased to announce that our campaign to raise funds to purchase the gold and turquoise ring, once owned by Jane Austen has been successful. Our offer to buy the ring from singer Kelly Clarkson was accepted and the ring is now on display in the Museum.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated to the appeal.


The Museum is an independent Museum which receives no regular funding. We need to raise funds for future acquisitions and to support our Education work. By giving via the link below you will be helping to support our work for future generations.
