Jane Austen's House information
A stone's throw from Winchester Cathedral is the house where Jane Austen, one of England's best-loved authors, spent her last six weeks before she died in 1817. It's now a private residence. You can also visit her grave; it's near the entrance of the cathedral, in the northern aisle.
