I’m not the biggest fan of Pride and Prejudice 2005, and it infuriates me that people think Chatsworth House is meant to be Pemberley (Mr Darcy’s home – and it isn’t!).
However, the visit to Chatsworth today was pretty entertaining from a Jane Austen perspective.
Proper pictures later, but for now, here’s Mr Darcy’s bust from the movie, plonked in the middle of the souvenir shop. You can buy your own miniature version for £50 (I managed to restrain myself 😁). (Please excuse the colour differences. I didn’t edit the pictures, but they were taken on two different phones!)
The sign underneath it asks people to please not *kiss* it!
And here is the signed copy of Longbourn I bought. I already own it in ebook form, love it, and reviewed it HERE.
