Broughton Castle Near Banbury - Film Location for Wolf Hall

This Castle is a hidden gem. Its only open a few days a week but throughly worth a visit. Its walled garden is beautiful. The castle was used  as a location for the filming of Wolf Hall the Man Booker prize winning novel by Hilary Mantel, staring Damian Lewis (Homeland actor) as Thomas Cromwell in the 6 part Tudor drama.

The knot garden was featured in the first episode of Wolf Hall. Henry was talking to Thomas Cromwell in the knot garden.

There is a lovely cafe in the courtyard.
