Historical Filming Location in Suffolk

Helmingham Hall is a moated manor house in Helmingham, Suffolk, England. When John Tollemache started work on Helmingham in 1480, it was built in traditional half-timbered style with an overhang to the upper floor both outside and inside the courtyard. There have been a number of changes in external appearance, but the basic form of the courtyard manor house has never altered, and many of the brick chimneys are original, although all have had to be repaired over the last two centuries.

The house is Grade I Listed on the National Heritage List for England, and its park and formal gardens are also Grade I Listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

The two drawbridges are pulled up every night as they have been since 1510, and the Hall thus becomes an island, protected by its wide moat just as it has been for so many centuries.
