The perfect location for photo shoots and film
Eridge Park provides the perfect quintessentially English location for a breathtaking backdrop for everything from photo shoots to a full feature film shoot. Dating back prior to 1450, it has over 3,000 acres of beautiful private parkland and many historic features, both architectural and natural. Its diverse landscape and buildings make it the ideal setting for a variety of photo shoots, from fashion to product launches. On the borders of Kent and East Sussex, it is in glorious, rolling countryside, easily accessible from London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, Eurostar and Ashford International. There is also easy access for vehicles to the Estate area so no need to worry about huge logistical issues of getting to the location.
The vast, unspoilt landscape features Britain’s oldest deer park, lakes, springs, caves, rock outcrops, woodland, farmland and countryside. The grounds and gardens benefit from panoramic views across the deer park and woodland.
Our woodland extends over more than 1,000 acres, ranging from more open style planting to the ancient woodland at Saxonbury Hill, site of an iron-age hill fort and Saxonbury Tower. The main residence is on the site of the former Eridge Castle. It was rebuilt in the 1930s in neo-Georgian style and commands spectacular views of the Park. Other buildings include hunting lodges, castle-like follies, stables, courtyards and a picturesque white-painted wooden cricket pavilion overlooking the Estate’s cricket pitch.
The estate has been used by many and varied companies for location work including Vogue, Land Rover, Belstaff and many more.
