Welbeck offers film-makers a setting for every story - from Victorian village streets to dark, subterranean worlds. The estate not only offers a wide variety of locations but also a private, peaceful environment in which to work.
The estate has provded the location for numerous TV programmes and films including:
- Bake Off Crème de la Crème - The architecture and landscape of the Estate provided a backdrop for the action, including the Abbey's Titchfield Library, the deer park, lake, Welbeck Village and The School of Artisan Food which was used as a 'prep' kitchen.
- Testament of Youth, a First World War drama starring Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander, was filmed on the Welbeck estate as well as other locations in Yorkshire, Oxford and London. Produced by Heyday Films and directed by James Kent, the film depicts Juliette Towhidi’s adapted screenplay of Vera Brittain's iconic and powerful First World War memoir, a searing story of love and war, first published in 1933.
- Dan Snow's Hidden Paintings for the BBC
- BBC4’s Macbeth, starring Patrick Stewart, read a blog post on the project by co-producer John Wyver on the BBC website here.
- Bronson, a feature film starring Tom Hardy which charts the life of the notorious convict Michel Peterson - also known as Charles Bronson.
If you didn’t recognise Welbeck, perhaps that’s the advantage of this very different location.
