Worting House Serviced Offices – www.wortinghouse.com – is delighted to be supporting the “Sitting With Jane Austen project”
Jane Austen is a great part of our English cultural heritage and its not recognised that she spent most of her life around Basingstoke. She mentions visiting Worting House, reputedly danced in the ballroom, and it’s great to think of her walking through what is still our unchanged front doorway.
Worting House was a private house until the 1950’s, and was converted to serviced offices in 1989.
We enjoy telling our clients in the hallway they must be standing where Jane Austen stood, and may be working where she partied! It’s a great project for Basingstoke and its profile and we are thrilled to be part of it.
