The Estate and filming

Luton Hoo Estate is a well located picturesque and versatile location with an extensive range of period buildings, estate roads (including the commanding Lime Tree Avenue extending out across open farmland for over 1 mile) and tracks, mixed woodland, Walled Garden, outdoor Victorian garden service buildings, open farmland, and paddocks.

Alongside these diverse exterior locations, we also have a number of commercial and residential period properties of various sizes and periods, a standalone coffee shop and dance studios onsite.

The imposing scale and authenticity of our traditional brick farm buildings and their surrounding cobbled lanes with easily utilised and flexible structures, great infrastructure, easily accessible on a well-connected site, have cemented Luton Hoo Estate as a firm favourite in the film and tv industry.
