Maia's visit at Wilton House - Pemberley's Interior in Pride & Prejudice (Part 3)

Our P&P (2005) movie's 10th Year Anniversary event here continues...

Yesterday, I posted about Maia's Highclere Castle visit and a Downton Abbey Exhibition at Basildon Park (Part 2) and the day before, A Special Pride & Prejudice (2005) Exhibition at Basildon Park with Maia (Part 1). As aforementioned, my friend Maia from Hungary, who just recently visited Basildon Park, one of P&P movie's filming locations last August (11th) as well as Downton Abbey's (there was a Downton Abbey Exhibition at Basildon Park too). She also visited Highclere Castle (August 12th), the main house used as Downton Abbey and another P&P filming location, Wilton House (August 13th), which she is sharing here with us her experience in visiting the house.

Read about Maia's unforgettable experience visiting Wilton House in Wiltshire and see a video of P&P filming a couple key Pemberley scenes at Wilton House below...

Finally, I visited Wilton House (interior of Pemberley in two scenes) on August 13th. The single and double cube room. They were used in Pride & Prejudice (2005) movie. As I talked to the guide volunteer, she confirmed to me that the scene when Georgiana was first playing on the piano-forte, it was in the single cube room, and Lizzie was in the double cube room, from where she was observing when Darcy came behind his sister, then they hugged and realized that Lizzie had been there.

Then, the next scene we could see that in Chatsworth (if we would have been there inside as well) Lizzie was running away from Darcy, etc. which you know that...

The other scene is, when they are all in the double cube room.

The furniture stayed the same, they just brought into the room a huge pianoforte in which Tamzin Merchant aka Georgiana Darcy played for us in the movie.

They just used a lot of light to the scene and didn’t even change the view from the windows, because it was still the same as it would be, by the way, at Chatsworth. Joe Wright, the director said that "this is the most beautiful room in England," so I had to see it, and I did it. I can confirm it was! However, it is a private home (much like Highclere Castle). So, unfortunately, I couldn’t take photos, just from the outside, forgive me.

Although I hope that all my P&P Basildon Park, Highclere Castle and Wilton House pictures, video and the audio recordings are enough and informative to you and now we can know more and more about (almost every detail) our favourite movie and how they made it. Thanks for reading! Thanks for the space! I wish all of you, at least once, would visit these beautiful places! All were amazing! -Maia 

Special thanks to Maia for guest blogging here and sharing her experience visiting P&P and DA filming locations. Thanks also for getting our P&P Movie's Anniversary event here started.
