One Day Workshops
This charming Elizabethan manor house was home to Jane Austen's brother, Edward. She spent part of her life in one of the cottages on his estate and often walked up to 'The Great House' to enjoy time with her family, surrounded by idyllic Hampshire countryside. Home to a unique collection of early women's writing, Chawton House hosts a variety of events of both literary and general interest.
