The Wonderful World of Jane Austen has had a rich life both on page and on screen.
Sense And Sensibility, Pride And Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma – the esteemed English novelist has penned some of the most beloved literary classics of all time. Ripe for adaptation, it’s no surprise we’ve seen plenty of filmmakers take on his work over the years.
Indeed, there is something so brilliant about his books that fascinated people keep translating his words on screen. The latest example is Persuasion.
Directed by Carrie Cracknell, the American drama arrived on Netflix on Friday July 15, 2022 and is based on the novel of the same name by Jane Austen.
With a cast including Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Richard E Grant, and Henry Golding, it’s got attention. However, these performers aren’t the only stars – the filming locations can also be considered as such. So where was Persuasion filmed?

Where was Persuasion filmed?
The majority of filming for Persuasion took place in the beautiful city of Bath, which is in the county of Somerset, England.
It’s actually Somerset’s largest town and is named after its Roman baths which tourists are familiar with. However, a number of other locations in southern England were part of the film’s final cut.
One of Bath’s spots to visit is Royal Crescent, a row of 30 terraced houses that form a wide crescent. The Radio Times reports that footage of the popular period drama Bridgerton – also on Netflix – was filmed there.
According to Condé Nast Traveller, the Royal Crescent was used to film the exterior of Elliot’s home in Camden Place.
