Filming & Photoshoots

Film Location

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, including the award-winning Walled Garden. There are also a wide range of other traditional buildings, 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 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 starred David Thewlis, Miranda Richardson and Ken Stott.

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.

Photoshoot Location

Scampston Hall and its wider grounds 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.

"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. "

"Inside, [Scampston Hall] boasts some of the finest Regency interiors in Britain. There are original wallpapers and exquisite furniture that reflects the family’s French heritage. There is also a notable collection of porcelain and 5,000 rare books that come off the shelves every ten years to be waxed and dusted. "
