Filming at Holkham

The Location

Holkham Estate is a premier location for the film, television, fashion and advertising industries and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide a professional service. We are experienced in the demands of a busy crew and are here to ensure your shoot goes smoothly.

Recent clients include: Netflix, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Grazia, Porter Magazine, Joules, Toast, Next, Burberry and Mr Porter to name just a few.

The elegant 18th Century Holkham Hall is one of the finest examples of Palladian architecture in the country and offers a wide range of seductive and panoramic locations for TV, film and stills photography.

The hall itself is situated at the heart of a beautiful, sweeping deer park that is the centre of a 25,000 acre estate on the windswept north Norfolk coast. The list of possible locations is endless; from the exterior and interior of the hall to the many follies and unusual gatehouses within the park, the untouched pine forest and wilderness of Holkham beach, to the brightly coloured beach huts on Wells beach.

Our sumptuous staterooms, including the unique Marble Hall and the Statue Gallery, featured as the interior of Buckingham Palace in the BBC docudrama ‘Victoria & Albert’ (2018) as well as Joanna Hogg’s latest feature film ‘The Souvenir’ (2017). Various staterooms and the park featured in the C4 docudrama ‘Victoria’s Men’ (2008). While the estate’s golden sandy beach was trodden by actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the closing scenes of Miramax’s ‘Shakespeare in Love.’ More recently we saw Natalie Portman in ‘Annihilation’ (Netflix 2016). David Jason and Maggie Smith also dined in the great saloon for the First World War drama, ‘All The King’s Men’.

Parts of the ITV1 drama ‘Kingdom’, featuring comedian Stephen Fry, were filmed on Wells and Holkham beaches and the blockbuster movie ‘The Duchess’ starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes was filmed at Holkham in 2007. Later the same year, the staterooms were again used for the comedy-drama film ‘My Talks with Dean Spanley’ starring Peter O’Toole.
