Pride & Prejudice Country 

Step back in time to the the real life movie set of Pride & Prejudice and explore a hidden England where stunning stately homes such as Chatsworth in Derbyshire and Burghley House in Lincolnshire combine with dramatic landscapes to inspire romance and relaxation.

In the sumptuous new film adaptation of
Jane Austen's classic novel,
Pride & Prejudice, Lizzie (Keira Knightley) meets up with the darkly handsome and snobbish Mr.Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen); what seems at first to be a match made in heaven quickly becomes one of the most classic battles of the sexes ever portrayed in literature and the movie magic opens a window on their society and lives.

Visitors to Pride & Prejudice country even have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the stars by booking rides in period carriages used for the movie.
