Attraction Information

If your little ones love story-time, they’ll love exploring Jane Austen’s House in Hampshire, a fantastic museum where the famous author lived and wrote, and is packed full of loads of fun kid-approved activities. 

For little explorers, follow the awesome activity trail around the museum, and they'll love dressing up in the old fashioned clothes and pulling their best poses. Try your hand at writing with an old-fashioned quill, why not see who can do the prettiest handwriting?
