Loseley Park is an increasingly popular film venue: It has the following attributes:
•Within easy reach of London and M25
• Loseley House is a fine example of Elizabethan architecture with royal connections. It was built in 1562 by Sir William More and visited by Queen Elizabeth 1
• Most of the building stone came from the Cistercian Waverley Abbey, near Farnham. This contributes to its mellow appearance.
• The Great Hall is the centrepiece of the House and contains many fine works of art, furniture from the 17th century and unique features such as the panelling from Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace which is less than a quarter of an inch thick. There is also a magnificent chalk fireplace. The carving on the Minstrel’s Gallery is by Grinling Gibbons.
• The library in the corridor to the West of the Great Hall was one of the first to be created by an English gentleman.
• The Drawing Room at the end of the corridor contains a gilded ceiling and a superb and unique chimneypiece carved out of a solid block of chalk. Such intricate work to a Holbein design would have demanded great skill from a wood carver, but in chalk it is a fantastic achievement.
• Upstairs at the end of the passage is a room that was occupied by King James I, known as the Kings Room and Queen Elizabeth’s Room adjoins the Kings Room and contains some beautiful tapestry of the Charles II period.
• Outside is a stunning 2.5 acre Walled Garden containing five separate areas including a rose garden, herb garden, vegetable garden, flower garden and white garden. There is also a lovely moat alongside the garden.
• There is parkland in front of Loseley House and extensive fields and woodland stretching up to the North Downs.
• There is also a lovely stable-yard with Victorian stalls and a carriage store.
• Several lovely cottages of all shapes and sizes are scattered in the grounds and on the Estate which extends to 1400 acres in total.
• Other film locations at Loseley Park include cellars, avenues and a lake.
