Godmersham, the former home of Edward Knight, brother of Jane Austen, was built in 1732 with additions in the 1780’s. Jane was a frequent visitor and it is believed to have been the inspiration behind some of her novels.
In the 1920’s, it was purchased by the Tritton family who set about furnishing it with the very finest collection of 18th century English furniture and antiques.
The house and collection were sold in 1983 and since then the estate has been in the careful and loving custody of the Sunley family, who have generously granted their permission for this exhibition.
Now used as a College for the Association of British Dispensing Opticians, it remains one of East Kent’s most beautiful houses and is not otherwise open to the public.
We hope that you will enjoy visiting this magnificent property and seeing it furnished once again as a home.
