When Jane Austen was 33 years old, she took possession of a cottage in the village of Chawton, which had been a gift from her brother Edward. Our Friday Favorite this week is not one but two virtual tours of this cottage.

The first deals mainly with the exterior of the house, and comes to us via Jane Austen’s World right here on WordPress: http://janeaustensworld.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/a-pictorial-visit-to-chawton/

The second deals mainly with the interior of the house, courtesy of the Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton: http://www.jane-austens-house-museum.org.uk/about/house_tour.htm
