Coronavirus update (20 March):


​​Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation we have taken the difficult decision to close Jane Austen's House to visitors until further notice, and to cancel some upcoming events. We will continue to monitor the situation and guidelines closely and will make further changes if the need arises.


Our staff and volunteers will be working remotely, as well as carrying out regular checks and periodic works onsite to ensure that the safety of the House is maintained throughout, so we can welcome visitors back as soon as possible.


Please sign up for our newsletter and follow our social media channels for the latest news updates – and we will also be sharing memories, stories, photos and videos to help our followers stay in touch during these difficult times.


We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we are able.


Please stay well and safe,

All of us at Jane Austen's House

Step into Jane Austen's home


Jane Austen's House Museum in Hampshire is the only house where Jane Austen lived and wrote that is open to the public. It is the most treasured Austen site in the world. 


It was in this country cottage that Jane's genius flourished and where she wrote, revised and had published all her novels, including the timeless Pride and Prejudice.
