‘Rebecca’ locations guide: Where was Netflix’s adaptation filmed?

Netflix has released a brilliant guide to the filming locations used in Rebecca.

Based on Daphne du Maurier’s classic romantic Gothic thriller, the new movie premiered on Netflix last month.

Rebecca was first published in 1938 and the story was previously adapted by Alfred Hitchcock for his 1940 movie, starring Sir Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.

Netflix’s new adaptation stars Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) and Lily James (Downton Abbey) as aristocratic widower Maxim de Winter and his new wife.

Multiple locations around England were used during the film’s production, including Dorset, Guildford, West Sussex, and Beaminster.

Rebecca is available to watch exclusively on Netflix now.

The cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Keeley Hawes (The Durrells), Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sam Riley (SS-GB), and Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones).

The official synopsis reads: “After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter, a newly married young woman arrives at Manderley, her new husband’s imposing family estate on a windswept English coast.

“Naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim’s first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers.”

Rebecca star Lily James is currently filming a new adaptation of The Pursuit of Love for the BBC.

Daphne du Maurier’s novel Rebecca is available on Amazon.
