Some of the locations in the novel are real places in England, while most of them are actually imaginary places, that Jane Austen came up with. While the counties are actually real, like Hertfordshire, Derbyshire, Kent, Sussex and London.

In the novel Hertfordshire is the only one that introduces only imaginary places. Those are Longburne, which is the residence of the Bennet family (Elizabeth lives here). Then there is also Netherfield Park, which is bought by the Bingleys, and they stay there for some time. Lucases live in Lucas Lodge, and then there is also the village of Meryton, where at some point militia stays. And there is an additional place, which I think is worth mentioning, that’s Oakham Mount – where Elizabeth and Darcy finally admit their faults and their feelings to each other. Others here aren’t worth mentioning.

Derbyshrine on the other hand has both type of places, the real, like the touristic and scenic locations that are mentioned during Elizabeth’s stay with the Gardiners: Bakewell, Chatsworth, Matlock, Dove Dale and the Peak, while made up from Austen’s fantasy are Pemberley (the fantastic residence of the Darcys), the village of Lambton (Mrs. Gardiner comes from there) and the village of Kympton (this is where Wickham says was to be a clergyman).

In the county of Kent there is Ramsgate, which is real, and it’s the place where Georgiana Darcy stayed for a summer. While Lady Cathrine de Bourgh lives in the imaginary Rosings, and Mr.Collins is rector in the made up Hunsford, both near Westerham.

The Sussex location is actually real, we are talking about the town of Brighton, which is a fashionable sea-side resort. In the novel is where temporary military camp goes, and Lydia follows. In real life it was actually a hangout of the Prince Regent and his “decadent” coterie.
