Films Shot at Hampton Court Palace

Happy Saturday evening everyone! My next stop in my “On Location” travelogue is to take a look at the site of many film and television productions – the historic royal Hampton Court Palace.

The former residence of kings has gained legendary status due to its association with the Tudor dynasty. For a little more about the history of the palace, watch the video below.


Here is a list of feature films shot at the landmark in East Molesey, Surrey.

  • Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
  • The New World (2005)
  • Jack the Giant Killer (2012)
  • The Young Victoria (2009)
  • Amazing Grace (2006)
  • The Libertine (2004)
  • Vanity Fair (2004)
  • A Man for All Seasons (1966)
  • Stage Beauty (2004)
  • To Kill a King (2003)
  • Baby Love (1968)
  • Three Men in a Boat (1956)

In addition, television productions that have filmed at the palace include the renowned:

  • Little Dorrit (2008)
  • John Adams (2008)
  • The Six Wives of Henry VIII (2001)

On a personal note, my trip out to the palace was highlighted by an audience with the man himself – King Henry VIII. Unfortunately I do not have any photos of that …


  1. Wow, there are more movie filmed here than I thought. I do remember seeing it in Amazing Grace and also Young Victoria, I love both of those films.

  2. Looks like a fun place so I’m not surprised it was used so many times for movies. I could use me one of those as a vacation home 😉

  3. I love this feature. I really love seeing the real locations for films, and I especially like seeing ones so close to me!!

    thanks my friend
