Netflix’s highly anticipated film adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” is finally here — and, in true Regency era fashion, there is no shortage of English country houses to fawn over throughout the motion picture. Fortunately, many of these dwellings can be visited in real life in some capacity, either as event venues or as house museums, meaning, you, too, can live out your Jane Austen-inspired fantasies. Below, find a list of all seven abodes that take on starring roles in the film.

Trafalgar Park in Salisbury, Wiltshire 

In “Persuasion,” Trafalgar Park acts as Kellynch Hall, Anne’s family home. In real life, this Georgian-style abode was built in 1733 and is located in the city of Salisbury in south Wiltshire, England. And this is not the first time it will appear in a Jane Austen film adaptation — it was also featured in “Sense and Sensibility” (1995).

Ammerdown House in Radstock, Somerset

Ammerdown House — which can be seen in “Persuasion” as the fictional Camden Place (the Elliot family residence in Bath), as well as the White Hart Inn and Molland’s Confectioners — was built in 1788 by architect James Wyatt. Its picturesque walled garden was added in 1793.

Brympton House in Yeovil, Somerset

Brympton House — also known as Brympton d’Evercy — is the Uppercross House in “Persuasion.” It’s believed to have been built in approximately 1220, though the dwelling had very little written about its history until some 50 years ago. Today, it is used as a venue for weddings and events.

Royal Crescent Bath in Bath, Somerset

Built between 1767 and 1774, the Royal Crescent consists of 30 houses in the shape of a crescent — hence its name — in the English city of Bath. The Palladian-style structure is 500 feet long and boasts 114 Ionic columns in total. It serves as the exterior of Camden Place in “Persuasion.”

West Wycombe Park in West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

Acting as the Dalrymple residence is West Wycombe Park, an English country house that was built between 1740 and 1800. It features an amalgamation of architectural styles, including Neoclassical, Queen Anne, and Palladian, amongst others.

Chenies Manor House in Buckinghamshire

Built in 1460, Chenies Manor House is the oldest abode featured in “Persuasion.” In the film, its interior can be seen as part of a cottage located in the fictional estate known as Uppercross. The Tudor-style home is quite well-known for its scenic array of tulips, which bloom every spring.

Osterley Park in Isleworth, London

Although you may not recognize Osterley Park by name, there is a chance you’ve seen it prior to its starring role in “Persuasion,” as it also appeared in “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012) and on the cover of Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Band On The Run” album, circa 1973. It was originally built in the 1570s and was later remodeled, between 1761 and 1765, by architect Robert Adam.
