# 89 Weekend outing: Basildon Park

As a fan of Jane Austen it was exciting to find out that Basildon Park, a National Trust property in Berkshire, was used as one of the main locations in Pride and Prejudice, the movie with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. Basildon Park was Netherfield, Mr Bingley's house and some of the scenes were filmed inside.

Anyway, we spent a lovely day there. It started with a guided tour of the house followed by a picnic in a shady spot under a tree, then a long walk around the park and again into the house to see things in more detail and to take photos followed by a stroll in the garden before returning to the car for the drive home.

Here are a few pictures, but if you'd like to see more you can find them here.
