Pride and Prejudice Filming Locations Around England

There are two popular adaptations of the Pride and Prejudice novel: the 1995 BBC TV series with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy and the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet. 

Each of these adaptations use different movie locations around England so we’ve split them up accordingly (red = 1995 and purple = 2005).

Whether you want to walk in the steps of Firth, Knightley or both, we’ve got you covered. 

Let’s go location scouting!

Pride and Prejudice 1995 Locations

Peak District National Park, Derbyshire

Ramshaw Rocks, Peak District

The Peak District is a beautiful and iconic image in Pride and Prejudice and is where Elizabeth can be found exploring with her aunt and uncle before visiting Pemberley and seeing Mr Darcy again.

How to visit:

At 555 square miles, the Peak District might not be the UK’s largest National Park, but it’s certainly one of the most famous and can be found in between Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham. 

If you want to see one of the most iconic BBC Pride and Prejudice locations in the Peak District, then you’ll want to head to Ramshaw Rocks, which are close to the A53 in the south west part of the Peak District. 

There is parking nearby and you won’t need to hike for too long to get to the iconic rocks.

Other places to visit nearby:

  • Doxey Pool: You can’t possibly leave the Peak District without hiking for longer. The Ramshaw Rocks are part of a fabulous hike along The Roaches, which includes a pitstop at Doxey Pool. It’s said that a mermaid or ‘Blue Nymph’ lives in the pool (although don’t let your children get too close as the mermaid is said to pull children in!)
  • Longnor: Found just ten minutes away from the Ramshaw Rocks is the village of Longnor, which was also used as a filming location within the 1995 BBC TV series. Chapel Street in Longnor was where the Lambton Inn was said to be.

Chapel Street, Longnor

It’s easy to see two Pride and Prejudice 1995 locations in one day thanks to the village of Longnor being a mere ten minute drive from the Ramshaw Rocks. 

Here, you can walk along Chapel Street, which was used as the fictional town of Lambton and the Lambton Inn (where Elizabeth Bennet stayed with her aunt and uncle during their jaunt to the Peak District).

How to visit:

To make your search for Pride and Prejudice filming locations even more memorable, why not stay in the village of Longnor

There are lots of quaint little cottages and bustling inns to stay in, which will easily transport you back in time!

Other places to visit nearby:

  • Bakewell: Found just 20 minutes from Longnor is the old market town of Bakewell. Despite Longnor being used as the filming location for Lambton, it’s believed that Jane Austen actually got her inspiration from Bakewell instead. So a walk through here would complement any Pride and Prejudice trip to the Peak District!
  • Chatsworth House: Found 30 minutes from Longnor (and close to the village of Bakewell) is the majestic Chatsworth House, which was actually one of the Pride and Prejudice 2005 filming locations as none other than the exterior of Pemberley itself.

Belton House, Lincolnshire

Belton House - Pride & Prejudice 1995 Location

The majestic 17th century Belton House in Lincolnshire serves as both the interior and exterior of Rosings Park, home to the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

Note that Sudbury Hall in Derbyshire was used for the interior shots.

How to visit:

Lyme Park can be found close to the tip of the eastern side of the Peak District National Park, while Sudbury Hall is 45 miles south of there.

Both properties are owned by the National Trust, which is great news if you’re a member as you’ll be able to visit both places for free and on the same day.

Lacock Abbey & Village, Wiltshire

The unmissable Lacock Abbey cloisters stood in for the University of Cambridge during flashbacks of Mr Darcy’s time as a student.

While Lacock Village was the setting of the fictional town of Meryton where we first meet the too-charming George Wickham.

How to visit:

Lacock Abbey is owned by the National Trust, which means members can visit for free, while non-members can pay on the door. 

You’ll also want to leave some time to stroll around the pretty Cotswolds village of Lacock too, which is home to old timber framed houses, sweet shops and country pubs.

The eagle eyed among you will have spotted that this list of Pride and Prejudice 1995 locations doesn’t include the Bennet family home. In the 1995 BBC adaptation, Luckington Court in Wiltshire was used, which is a private residence. So unless you’ve got £9 million to spare, this is one filming location that you won’t be able to visit.

Stourhead, Wiltshire

Dogs are allowed in the garden on leads at certain times of day. From March to October, they’re welcome after 4pm; after 3pm in November; and during the daytime from December to February.

The beautiful National Trust-owned estate of Stourhead is home to one of the most iconic Pride and Prejudice 2005 locations of them all. 

The Temple of Apollo overlooking the estate was where Mr Darcy finally confesses his love for Elizabeth… in the rain… 

But he sadly doesn’t quite use the right words to convince her of how much he really does love her. 

This temple even allows for weddings to take place here too!

The Temple of Apollo - Pride & Prejudice 2005 Location

How to visit:

The Stourhead House, Gardens and Estate are all owned by the National Trust. While members can visit for free, non-members can buy their tickets on the door.

Basildon Park - Pride & Prejudice 2005 Filming Location

The incredible 18th century mansion Basildon Park was used as Netherfield Park in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie where Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy were staying. 

This is also where Jane takes to bed with a cold (thanks to her mother’s ingenious attempts at matchmaking).

The interior was renovated in the 1950s so elaborate set dressings were used inside to make the interior shots in keeping with Austen’s era.

Basildon Park - Pride & Prejudice 2005 Filming Location

How to visit:

Basildon Park is now owned by the National Trust so members can visit for free

Non-members can buy tickets for the house, gardens and 400 acre estate on the door. 

You’ll want to spend all day here as the walks around the estate are extensive and well worth it (especially in the spring when the woodlands sprout thousands of bluebells).
