Welcome to Peak District
Peak District has been attracting tourists for centuries for its captivating natural beauty and royal buildings.
It’s one of the most diverse landscapes that England has to offer, from the Dark peak with its moorland to the White Peak with its limestone hills.
It’s not surprising that the Peak District National park is Britain’s first created National Park.
Many people escape the cities to the Peak District cottages to relax, soak up the surrounding nature and fresh air, and exploring the area.
A fun twist to your itinerary is to follow a movie-location map and visit places where famous movies have been filmed, and trust us, there are many of them…
The beautiful nature and stunning royal buildings have made the Peak District a very popular place for costume films.
Here are the top movies filmed in the Peak District and locations to check out.
Pride And Prejudice
The film locations to Pride and Prejudice are actually very accurate to the original novel, set mainly in the Peak District in the counties of Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.
Chatsworth in Derbyshire was used as Darcy’s family home, and where Elisabeth unexpectadly met Darcy.
Stanage Edge is a very beautiful spot where Elisabeth stands on the peak with an incredible view from the grit stone formation. The spot is very famous for rock climbing.
Lyme Park is one of the most famous places to visit for people on Peak District holidays, which was the location where a very wet Darcy emerged from the lake.
The Malfoy Manor in ”Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows” was the beautiful Hardwick Hall, and they are very proud of it.
So much so, that if you visit Hardwick Hall today you will find a ”Chamber of Magic” where kids can try out Wizard wands and wizard capes, pretending to be part of the movie Harry Potter and his world.
Various Movies – Haddon Hall
Haddon Hall is perhaps the most popular film locations of them all. Both Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl and Elizabeth have used the place as a filming location – and rightly so.
It is very well preserved, with a great collection of English, French and Flemish tapestries, and a kitchen which has basically remained unchanged for centuries.
You get a good insight into what life was like here, both for the workers as well as the duke and his family.
