ITV's Victoria

Let's start with the iconic itv Victoria series that has been in the press several times for using different filming locations in York and North Yorkshire. Hands up who loves Albert ? Here Albert is showing us his best smoulder along with our lovely 113 acre park and the hill top Temple of Victory.  The castle was used across the 3 series but we love the second season when the castle is portrayed as a German estate and the residence of Alberts Uncle. These are also shorts of our interior and here we have our lovingly restored fireplace from our dining room centre stage with Albert at his Uncle's banquet. 

 


Lost in Austen

One of our particular favourite filming locations is the fountain, used along with the Castle by Lost in Austen the comical retelling of Pride and Prejudice with 21st century girls being thrown into the regency period and into Mr Darcy. Showcasing our lovely facade and monument garden for the world war two Canadian air force stationed at Allerton, along with our  breath-taking stairs and scenic views.

The Secret Garden

Anyone remember the iconic 1993 ‘The Secret Garden’ where we have picturesque shots of misty and frosty Allerton with some of our restored suites being used. The beds look so comfy!


Sherlock Holmes

Here we have our great hall and staircase being an iconic feature in the scene and centre stage for some Sherlock action in the sign of four hope you can make them out from the dark gothic scenes. 










Agatha Christie ABC murders

Agatha Christies the ABC murders also features our amazing Allerton Castle, did anyone spot us? Well we are a few of the internal room scenes, mainly the banquet hall at the victim C’s stately home. Poirot and Sherlock we are collecting detectives it seems.
