Steeped in the grandeur of the Victorian period, the estates offer magnificent building exteriors and interiors, including a large Chapel and historic halls surrounded by awe-inspiring courtyards and colonnades.
Set in 400 acres of parkland in leafy Berkshire, the College also boasts beautiful gardens, country lanes and a 9-hole golf course, only 1 hour from Central London.
Given our convenient location and spacious on-site parking, we can provide either a one-stop solution for productions large and small, or simply space for your crew base.
Should your event require a catering or hospitality element, we offer a broad selection of traditional and contemporary menu options, from light refreshments to daily counter breakfast / lunch / dinner.
Wellington College offers a flexible shooting environment for film productions and photoshoots, which have included: TV Series: The Crown (Series 2 & 3), BBC 2’s Collateral, and Midsomer Murders. Feature films: Thunderbirds, An Ideal Husband, George Clooney’s “The Midnight Sky”, Ironbark, and photography shoots, such as Jack Wills. Please see our Photo Gallery for a flavour of what our location has to offer.
The events staff were great aids in facilitating our filming requirements for The Crown and fully understood all our needs and were a joy to film with
