Filming & Photo-Shoot Location

Scampston Hall has recently hosted the filming of J. B. Priestley's famous play, An Inspector Calls. The feature length TV drama was made by Drama Republic for the BBC, and stars David Thewlis, Miranda Richardson and Ken Stott. Mark Gladwin, location manager for Drama Republic, commented:
 "I would like to thank Chris, his family and the team at Scampston Hall for helping us with our filming on An Inspector Calls. Throughout the prep, shoot and strike period of nearly six weeks they helped make the shoot run smoothly and were the perfect location owners to work with. We could not have asked for more and the experience was friendly and enjoyable".

Scampston Hall is one of North Yorkshire's finest stately home film locations. Set in 80 acres of beautiful Lancelot 'Capability' Brown parkland, the beautiful regency house with its exquisite interiors and art collection can form the perfect setting for a wide range of filming and photography requirements.

As well as Scampston Hall itself, there are the beautiful gardens surrounding the house and the award-winning Walled Garden as well as a wide range of other buildings, both formal and traditional, which can provide a breadth of back-drop that few other locations can match. Away from the house, the Scampston Estate extends to several thousand acres allowing freedom of access and wide ranging opportunities for all sorts of filming requirements.

Scampston Hall is superbly located as a central hub for filming, with easy access to the North Yorkshire Moors, the Yorkshire Wolds, the historic City of York and the North Yorkshire Heritage Coastline.

Scampston Hall and it's immediate grounds and wider estate can also be hired as a venue for catalogue photo-shoots. Most recently the house and grounds, as well as the Walled Garden, were used by mail-order clothing company Joseph Turner as a location for their photo-shoot.
