Chatsworth House

yesterday i went to visit Chatsworth House, which belongs to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. it was the main location used when filming the movie 'The Duchess' which stars Keira Knightley and it was also Mr Darcy's house in the 2005 adaptation of 'Pride and Prejudice'. i was really excited about going because i loved both of the movies and do generally love anything to do with the past.

the weather was perfect as the sun was shining all day! quiet surprising seeing as it rained all of July!

if any of you have seen the move pride and prejudice, this sculpture of Mr Darcy is in it :)
My pictures of inside the house aren't very good because the lighting was really dark. :( but this picture sums up the inside quiet well.

the gardens were gorgeous, these picture's don't really do them justice. i do have loads more but it would just take a lifetime to upload them.

overall i had a really good time looking around the house and strolling the gardens and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go and visit. if your a fan of the movies filmed there then a day out to Chatworth is a must for you :)
