Description

article thumb - Letter written by Jane Austen to her sister Cassandra

This exhibition is centred around a newly acquired Jane Austen letter, written from Jane to her sister Cassandra in September 1813, from their brother Henry’s house in Henrietta Street, Covent Garden. It is a long, chatty letter in which she reveals the details of everyday life, from shopping trips and visits to the theatre, to a hair appointment and a painful trip to the dentist.

Whilst Jane Austen lived in Hampshire for most of her life, she greatly enjoyed visiting London, where she revelled in the luxuries that a big city had to offer. This display will run from 8 September 2022 to 5 March 2023 and is free with House entry!
