This full-day guided private chauffeur tour takes you into the heart of England’s beautiful countryside to visit England's key film locations from the famous series, with visits and entrances to a spectacular Cathedral and two manor houses.
In real life, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were married in Westminster Abbey but this famous scene was recreated in Cambridgeshire’s Ely Cathedral, with a striking exterior and jaw-dropping interiors which date back to the 7th Century.
Ely Cathedral was also used for the Queen’s Coronation, where the cathedral was filled with hundreds of extras representing the various factions of the military, Commonwealth and other international dignitaries and royalty. It was also the setting for the big argument between Elizabeth and Prince Philip, when Philip declared “Are you my Queen or my wife?”.
Ely Cathedral is no stranger to film crews as it was also used as a setting for The King’s Speech, The Other Boleyn Girl, Jupiter Ascending, and Macbeth.
Once owned by King Henry VIII, Hatfield House was the childhood home of Elizabeth I and the location in which she learnt of her accession to the throne, making it an ideal royal setting for ‘The Crown’.
Located within an incredible country estate in Hertfordshire, the Jacobean house was built in 1611 and was used within ‘The Crown’ to represent Marlborough House, the London residence of Queen May, and a few scenes at Windsor Castle.
Many locations within Hatfield House were used in the filming of The Crown, including The King James Drawing Room which was where Queen Mary met her son, the Duke of Windsor for the first time in 9 years. The Winter Dining Room doubled-up as Queen Mary’s bedroom and the library was used to stand-in for the library at Windsor Castle. The Marble Gallery was used as the hall in which Queen Elizabeth gives a speech announcing that she will be taking the name of Windsor instead of Mountbatten.
This impressive Tudor stately home and Grade II listed building, set within 250 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside, featured in ‘The Crown’ as the interiors of Balmoral. Scenes include the private conversation between the Prince and Princess Margaret in the entry hall, the lively annual Ghillies ball which was shot The Great Hall at Knebworth and the bedroom of Prince Phillip during his stay at Balmoral.
Knebworth House was also used as a location for The Kings Speech and Batman the Movie.
