We don’t have a black front door though. The Tarzan scenes in the Downing Street Cabinet room are shot here. Here’s a longer list of films shot at Gaddesden Place. Set in the rolling countryside of the edge of Chiltern hills north of London, it has views over Gade valley. We have hosted film production from the smallest to the largest (the Warner Brother’s Tarzan movie had more than 200 crew and cast). Gaddesden Place is set within the larger Gaddesden Estate which offers additional filming support and locations including rolling countryside landscapes, woodland, farms and stables. We regularly cooperate with the Gaddesden Estate, for instance housing any larger Unit Base on a nearby farm. The Gaddesden Place stables is now home to The Stampede Stunt Company who provide trained horses for film and photo shoots.
