Go on location with Wolf Hall in Wiltshire


Following the BBC’s TV drama of Wolf Hall, go set-jetting to the Wiltshire TV locations used during filming.

Take a trip back in time on a cultural holiday and visit Lacock Abbey and Great Chalfield Manor, two National Trust properties that both featured in the filming of the Wolf Hall series, based on the book by Hilary Mantel.

The exterior of Lacock Abbey represented Wolf Hall, the family home of Jane Seymour and interiors, including the iconic cloisters, were also used for filming. Great Chalfield Manor, near Melksham, represented Thomas Cromwell’s home, Austin Friars.

Both locations have been used for several previous big screen productions, with Lacock featuring in some of the early Harry Potter films, as well as being the main location for Cranford. So step back in time and see for yourself why these properties make such great filming venues.
