Always wanted to explore Jane Austen’s house but can’t get to England? This video, made by MemorySeekers, is almost as good and definitely more cost-effective, presenting a guided room-by-room tour of Austen’s last home in Chawton, Hampshire—now a museum, of course—including a peek at the writing desk on which she banged out Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion. Not too shabby! At the very least, it’s a relaxing and informative way to spend 20 minutes today, if you’re into that kind of thing. Watch below:
