I was particularly happy to go on this trip when I found out it was the site of Pemberly in the most recent filming of “Pride & Prejudice”. I loved that movie so much that I watched it several times in theatres (that and nothing else good was playing.) This ‘home’ is owned by the Duke and Dutchess of Devonshire, and it’s in the Peak District. Everything about this place is absolutely breathtaking. I was particularly impressed with the main hall (huge marble staircase) and the library (500 year old books!!) Even the stable and carriage house is big enough that it now houses a restaurant, a bar, and 2 shops. The gardens cover many acres, and there are statues, ponds, and fountains everywhere. Definitely worth the visit.FrontFront fountainsGrand hallAchillesDining hall
