Location Filming

The Ragley Estate offers a diverse range of opportunities as a TV / Film location in the Midlands.

The Grade I listed Palladian mansion, Ragley Hall, with its impressive state rooms have obvious appeal if a period location is required, however it’s the ‘back of house’ areas that often attract the most interest from Directors. Attics, staircases and corridors are very much a blank canvas and can be transformed.

400 acres of parkland and gardens offer a variety of settings depending upon the time of year. A romantic Rose Garden, an interesting Winter Garden, not to mention a spring-bulb bank, summer meadow, fumpary, woodland walk and sculpture collection.

The Ragley Estate also boasts a Grade I listed stables, farm buildings, a sawmill, vast woodlands, a butchers, an adventure playground with 3D maze and a boating lake.

Situated on the Warwickshire & Worcestershire border, Ragley is centrally located and easily accessible from the M40, M42, M6 and M5 motorways – less than 1 hour from Birmingham and just 2½ hours from Central London.
