Winchester's Historic Meeting Place
St. John's House is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 14th Century. In the 18th Century the first floor was dramatically altered to provide an elegant Assembly Room where the wealthy citizens of the day attended balls, dinners and concerts including recitals by the man who taught Jane Austen to play the piano. The original 18th Century stucco plasterwork is a fine example of Regency craftsmanship.
