Places in the Pages: Pride and Prejudice

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.

Do you have a book-related travel wish-list?

More Favourite Book to Film Adaptations

After writing my first version of this post, I found some new adaptations that I fell in love with! So here’s my list of favourite book to movie adaptations, continued.

The Fault in Our Stars (John Green) Okay, I know everyone’s talking about it and it’s not very new, but…isn’t it a fantastic adaptation? Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen) Joe Wright is potentially my new favourite director. This is such a beautiful film! I loved all of the characters, the cinematography and the screenplay. After spending so long toiling over the book, it was so refreshing to watch a slightly easier-on-the-brain version.

Anna Karenina (Leo Tolstoy) This one’s a bit of a cheat because I haven’t actually read the book! (I’m YOUNG – I have time!) Joe Wright strikes again with a really unique and breath-taking film. I loved the way the scene changes worked as though it were playing out on stage; it was all so gracefully done. In all honesty though, I think I’d have been happier watching a film solely about Konstantin and Kitty’s story – they’re the cutest thing.

What are some of your favourite book to movie adaptations? Did you like any of the ones I mentioned?
