It has a wide range of period and modern rural settings, historic buildings and props and an unspoilt landscape, making it suitable for costume dramas, feature films, documentaries and photographic shoots.
Acton Scott achieved national television fame as the setting for BBC 2’s ratings success story 'Victorian Farm' which was accompanied by a best-selling book. Explaining why he chose the Acton Scott estate, David Upshal, Executive Producer, said: “In an age when most landowners were busy obliterating all traces of the past to modernise their land and buildings, the Actons lovingly preserved much of the history and heritage of theirs."
The estate went on to provide the film location for 'Ben Fogle's Escape in Time'. In 2011, Acton Scott featured in a brand new television series 'Making Britain Count', presented by Phil Tufnell, and was also to be seen on the BBC's popular 'Escape to the Country' series. BBC Television, Lion Television, Talk Back Thames TV, Twenty Twenty and Screen West Midlands are just some of the organisations who can recommend Acton Scott for filming projects based on their own experiences working with the estate.
Acton Scott Hall is now also available as a film location within the estate, and is registered as such with Historic Houses.
