Jane Austen's House

The house was on her brother's Chawton House estate. She lived here with her mother and her older sister, Cassandra, a talented amateur water colourist.
This house is now a museum dedicated to Jane Austen's life and work, for it was here she completed her most famous books between 1809 to 1817.

Chawton is a village in East Hampshire in the lovely South Downs National Park. Jane Austen is the village's most celebrated person. Chawton House, a Grade II listed building was at one time owned by her brother, Edward Austen Knight. This building is now being restored and appropriately will become the new Centre for the study of Early Women's Writing between 1600 and 1830.

Mottisfont in the magical Test Valley is home to Mottisfont Abbey owned by The National Trust.  The village is not far from Romsey. The Abbey is well worth a visit at any time of the year. Great for the roses in the summer, but the Spring bulbs can rival it!

Stanstead House stands four square in its beautiful grounds, Stanstead Park. Open to the public and worth a visit in its own right.

Rowlands Castle is in the south east of the county on the Sussex border. A very pleasant place with a large village green.

Tadley is a small town in the north of Hampshire. The Treacle Fair is named after a legend of the 1800's that there were "treacle mines" in the area! A joke to test the gullible!!

The Royal Marines Museum was located at Eastney Barracks on the seafront in Southsea. It was once an interesting venue for the Antiques Road Show. Now a new Museum has been created at the Royal Historic Dockyard. The Museum is well  worth a visit, especially for family historians with ancestors in the Royal Marines. The Museum houses an extensive collection of medals as well.

Hillier Gardens is on the fringes of Romsey. Open all year - yes even in winter.  There is a garden centre. Fun for the children and guided and self guided tours available. Romsey is an attractive town and great as a centre for touring the pretty Test Valley.

Waterlooville, a developing town, is in the south of the county, not far from Portsmouth.  It is said that the town got its name from a legend that soldiers from the Battle of Waterloo stopped there.

Vernham Dean is a little village on the Wiltshire and Berkshire borders. Village of the Year in 2012. It is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and that area deserves the title - The North Wessex Downs, rolling chalk hills and valleys.

Gosport - on the other side of Portsmouth Harbour. A ferry crosses the Harbour so it is easy to get from one place to the other. Being on the Harbour it too had its place in Naval History. Nowadays a pleasant bustling town.

Winchester Cathedral   One of the most famous Cathedrals in the world. A stately iconic edifice it dominates the city. If walls could talk, their tale would be of people and events that shaped the history of England.
