Jane Austen’s House

jane-austen-1On your visit to Jane Austen’s House Museum, you will be able to explore the house where Jane Austen lived and wrote.

The cottage itself houses our collection of Jane Austen artefacts whilst retaining the charms of the early 19th century home that Jane would have known.

Visit the bakehouse and kitchen where the domestic side of life was managed by the ladies of the house.

Enjoy the peaceful English cottage garden and imagine Mrs. Austen in her smock digging up the potatoes (much to her daughters’ embarrassment). You are welcome to bring your own food and picnic in the garden (well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome in the garden only).

Our purpose built Learning Centre houses interactive exhibits which are fun for all the family.

And don’t forget to browse our museum shop. We stock a large selection of souvenirs and hold a comprehensive range of Jane Austen literature.

We want to help our disabled visitors enjoy their experience as much as we can. There is wheelchair access to all the ground-floor areas on site (unfortunately the age of the building prevents us installing a lift). Guide-dogs are welcome throughout the museum. If you require any further information, please call us on 01420 83262.

Please note we do not have catering facilties on site. For food and drink in the village there are two options; Cassandra’s Cup (Friday-Sunday 10 till 4) and The Greyfriars Pub (12-2:30 for lunch). Please check their websites for full opening times and more information.
