Johnny Depp, a well-known actor in Hollywood, has chosen to leave behind the flash and glamour of Los Angeles in favour of a more tranquil life in the UK’s countryside. According to reports, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp likes the tranquil lifestyle that his £13 million estate in Somerset offers and has been spotted more frequently in the UK lately.

Depp performed a string of concerts with Jeff Beck in the summer of 2022 after his highly-publicized civil lawsuit in the US came to an end. The Edward Scissorhands actor appears to have turned his attention away from the spotlight.

Why Depp Moved to the UK?

Depp talked about his enjoyment of British humour and his freedom to travel without being pestered by admirers for photos. He admitted this in an interview with Somerset Life magazine. He stated: “I adore locations with personality. British people are cool and will greet you as if you are a neighbour – without going over the top. I enjoy travelling, experiencing new things, and interacting with people, but I’m not as outgoing as people may believe.”

Johnny Depp Somerset Mansion Features

The 850-acre Somerset home of actor Johnny Depp features a 19th-century mansion. It has 12 bedrooms and 8 baths, walled gardens, and is close to Kingston St. Mary in the West Country. Only a few weeks after proposing to his now ex-wife Amber Heard, he bought the mansion in 2014.

Johnny Depp Other Properties

Aside from his house in Somerset, Depp is said to have a $100 million (£82 million) real estate empire. It includes a private island, a £12 million residence in the south of France, and a sizable mansion in West Hollywood with a gothic design. Depp has recently been dwelling in London, despite not having yet bought a home there.

It seems that Johnny Depp has found solace in the British countryside. Here he can explore and live life on his terms without being mobbed by followers. The 60-year-old actor has certainly left behind the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for a more peaceful existence.
