Background for you people that don't know anything: Chatsworth House was where they filmed the new version of Pride and Prejudice. We went to see it on a weekend Saturday trip.
Only sad thing about Chatsworth was that some stupid girl had kissed the bust of Mr. Darcy that is in the movie, and gotten lipstick on it. It had to be taken away for washing.
Crazy girl. We were mad.
Right now the Duke and Duchess live at the house. Imagine having a few hundred people come and walk around your house and backyard every day? We were allowed to walk through a third of the house, but it was about a half mile walk. And the grounds and gardens went on and on forever. There was even a maze. And plenty of statues and fountains and old famous artwork. They even had this springtime flower exhibit with the most funky imaginative flower arrangements scattered all around the house.
The funny thing is that mixed in with all the old cool stuff is modern art. The current duke and duchess like it...for some reason that none of us could figure out. It wasn't even worthy of photography. Except for this one piece. It was a picture...not a painting or a photograph...more like an outline of a woman's face. And it changed color. It was really creepy. We stood and stared at it with really confused faces and were pretty much grossed out.
I have about five million more pictures I could put up here but it would take forever. So...Chatsworth House for ya'll!
