From War Horse and Les Misérables to Wolf Hall and Downton Abbey, visit the sets of some of our best-loved film and TV programmes, all based in Hampshire.
Spend cultural holidays immersing yourself in film and TV history with a visit to some of Hampshire’s best-known film locations.
Begin your tour in the north of the county. At Stratfield Saye House, battle scenes were shot for wartime epic War Horse. Not far away sits the impressive Highclere Castle, near Newbury. This is the home of Lord and Lady Grantham in ITV drama Downton Abbey.
Just outside of Basingstoke, scenes for British film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies were shot at Basing House. In Winchester, soak up the past at the Great Hall. This was used for scenes in the BBC’s Wolf Hall and Hollow Crown productions, as well as Brit flick The Riot Club.
Then in Portsmouth, discover over 800 years of naval history at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, which featured in the opening scenes of Hollywood blockbuster Les Misérables.
A trip to Milestones in Basingstoke brings the past to life. The museum is home to over 20,000 objects that were either made or used in Hampshire, and is a record of the county's social, industrial and transport history.
