P&P 200: A Special Pride & Prejudice Exhibition at Chatsworth House

Chatsworth, one of the filming locations for Pride & Prejudice (2005) film and best known as Pemberley, Mr. Darcy's grand estate in Derbyshire started their A Georgian Summer: Celebrating 200 Years of Pride and Prejudice late last month (from July 27th through August 29th, 2013). My friend Maia, who just visited Chatsworth the last week of July got to tour not just the house and garden, but also a special P&P (2005) exhibition (as it was filmed there almost 9 years ago) celebrating 200 years of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel.

Maia shared her wonderful P&P exhibition photos below...

The bust of Mr Darcy

The bust was made specially as a prop for the film Pride and Prejudice from 2005, and is modeled after Matthew Macfadyen. It sat among our own sculptures in the Sculpture Gallery while Elizabeth Bennet had her tour of Pemberley. He can now be found in the Orangery shop, at the end of the tour around the house.

Scenes from the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice and 2008 film The Duchess both starring Kiera Knightley were filmed at Chatsworth.
