Follow in the footsteps of film stars from 'The Duchess'

Bath, Somerset

Explore the different parts of Bath that were used as filming locations for the award winning 2008 movie, ‘The Duchess’, featuring Keira Knightley.


‘The Duchess’ portrays the life of 18th century aristocrat, Georgiana Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire. Featuring Keira Knightley as Georgiana, who visits Bath to take the waters, various locations in the city appear in the film that can be explored today:

The Royal Crescent – standing in front of this iconic attraction’s sweeping curve, it’s easy to see why it was used in many shots throughout the film.

Assembly Rooms – this stunning setting was used for the scene where Georgiana makes a head-turning entrance into a lavish occasion full of Britain’s elite society.

Holburne Museum - the grounds of this beautiful art museum were used for a picnic scene.
