You’ll embark on a captivating journey through over 90 years of filming, including some of the most unforgettable cinematic moments shot on the picturesque riverside grounds and inside the awe-inspiring Painted Hall. The knowledgeable guides will reveal the tricks of the trade and share intriguing behind-the-scenes tales that will leave you amazed.

- The exact spot where Buckingham Palace was recreated for The Crown (2016 – present).
- The setting for revolutionary Paris in Les Misérables (2012).
- Old Royal Naval College’s heroic role as a crashed spacecraft battleground in Thor: The Dark World (2013).
- The romantic waltz of a handsome couple in the iconic scene from Indiscreet, filmed in a replica Painted Hall in 1958.
- The outstanding performances of Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady (2011) and Emma Stone as Cruella in Disney’s 2021 delve into the villainess’ backstory.
- The very location in the Painted Hall where Nigel Hawthorne became King George in The Madness of King George (1994), watched over by his forebear George I, depicted in the famous painting.
- The exact spot where Rowan Atkinson delivered the classic line, “Repeat after me, I do take thee, Lydia Jane Hibbott, to be my awful wedded wife,” in Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994).
