I spent the last two nights in Sheffield, England just relaxing...but I didn't do this just to give myself a break from people, I wanted to see Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.  Now if you don't know what Chatsworth House is then think back to "Pride and Prejudice" (the new version).  Darcy's house was filmed at Chatsworth.  It was actually the estate that Jane Austen was describing in the book!  Another film that was filmed at Chatsworth was "The Duchess" (Also Keira Knightly).  That film was actually about the 9th Duke's wife Georgiana. Apparently its quite realistic with only a few hollywood moments thrown in, I really need to go watch it.  The house itself is basically a palace and the grounds are quite incredible.  There have been 15 generations of the Cavendish family that have lived on the grounds and the Duke still lives there with his family today.  Basically it is what happens when people have way too much money and not enough to do!  Anyways if you get a chance to go to England you should stop off at Chatsworth house!  Its amazing!  You can see the pictures in the photo gallery!
