In this new series of posts, I’ll be detailing what is basically my travel hit-list. I’ve collected a lot of locations that either appear in books, or have been a part of a movie adaptation.
Today’s post is about Joe Wright’s film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (2005). There are some stunning locations that I’m just itching to visit in person!
- Pictured is Chatsworth House (AKA, the Darcy residence). This stately home really is situated in Derbyshire, and offers a variety of activities and services (including weddings!). You can stay in one of their holiday cottages, or in one of the hotels on the estate. It blows my mind that people actually live there!
- If it’s the ‘Bennett residence’ you fancy, try Groombridge Place. Again, these guys put on lots of events, and they have some award-winning gardens for you to stroll through. It looks absolutely stunning.
- And finally, sometimes you just want to stand on a dramatic rock formation and squint wistfully into the wind. You can stand where Lizzie stood! Just pop over to Stanage Edge. This is a breath-takingly beautiful bit of English countryside, not limited to handy cliff-tops for perusing.
Those are my Pride and Prejudice Locations! (Hint: click on the photos to see the sources!) I think they’re gorgeous – if you’ve already been, let me know what you thought!
Do you have a book-related travel wish-list?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
