Visit the real Wayne Manor in Nottingham

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Wollaton Hall took on a very special role in when it appeared as ‘Wayne Manor’ in The Dark Knight Trilogy.

This historic Elizabethan mansion is a popular attraction in Nottingham, and a number of scenes were filmed in the grounds and Hall, including a garden party scene at night which features in the film’s trailer. A graveyard was also constructed in the grounds for the filming, and a number of internal refurbishments were made to the Hall to create the perfect Wayne Manor.

Many of the cast and crew of the film descended on Nottingham’s most loved historic hall, including Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.

Wollaton Park is also home to a herd of red deer, which roam around the magnificent gardens and parkland.  As the leaves turn golden and fall from the trees, take a stroll around the park where you can see the deer at their finest. With the magnificent Wollaton Hall as your backdrop, make sure you take plenty of photographs of these impressive animals.
