While the outfits and acting on The Crown have been phenomenal, it’s the filming locations that have caught our attention. Between the castles and palaces, that served as the show’s backdrop, once travel to England is permitted again, we can’t wait to explore these places.
In Season 4, we saw the soon-to-be Princess Diana roller-skating through the corridors of Buckingham Palace. The Palace has been the monarch’s official London residence since 1837 and it’s open to the public between July and October. Lancaster House, a neoclassical mansion, doubled as the palace.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married here and it’s also featured in The Crown. Built nearly 1,000 years ago by William the Conqueror, the world’s oldest castle, is the Queen’s weekend home. In the series, it’s doubled by the 16th-century Burghley House in Lincolnshire and the fairytale-like Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.
The birthplace of Queen Victoria, Kensington Palace is Charles and Diana’s London residence in Season 4 of The Crown. Among the places that doubled as the royal residence were Hertfordshire’s Brocket Hall, one of Queen Victoria’s favorite country estates and once home to two British Prime Ministers in the 19th century.
