Filming and photoshoots

Whether you need a location that captures a specific period of history, or just a spectacular or atmospheric backdrop for a shoot, the Charterhouse will provide an excellent range of styles, architecture, light and authentic period detail.

The Charterhouse has both unique sections of a medieval monastery, and sumptuous rooms from when the site was a grand Tudor mansion, where many noblemen lived, and where Elizabeth I first gathered her Privy Council before attending her coronation. Working either through a location agent, or directly with production companies, the site has featured in many well-known films and series, including St Trinian’s, Downton Abbey, Taboo, Horrible Histories, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and soon to be released Misbehaviour.

We are also delighted to have hosted some stunning photoshoots for premier magazines, and lifestyle brands, including GQ, Harper’s Bazaar and Alexander McQueen.

We can accommodate largescale film crews, lighting rigs, and full equipment with parking space for production trucks.

While being conscious that the Charterhouse is an almshouse where older people in need still live, we can be flexible about schedules and filming times.
