Discover Jane Austen’s house
Hampshire was the inspiration for many of Jane Austen's novels. From her home in Steventon, near Basingstoke, she wrote the first drafts of Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, and made shopping trips to Andover, Alton and Alresford.
She attended dances at The Vyne, near Basingstoke, and finished several of her famous novels at her home in Chawton, which now houses an excellent museum dedicated to the Austens.
