A Stunning Backdrop

The scene is already set at Parkwood  – it’s a film-maker’s dream!

One visit to our beautiful Estate will definitely be enough to spark your imagination. Come and see the amazing possibilities this magnificent Estate has to offer. From the great pillars at the front entranceway and rod-iron cantilever staircase, to its first of its kind bowling alley, fabulous 1917 kitchen and luxurious dining room, Parkwood is a moment waiting to be captured.

Film Production at Parkwood

Parkwood’s extraordinarily beautiful and meticulously preserved architecture and grounds are made for the big screen!

As a National Historic Site we have been careful not to spoil the original quality of this 100 year old Estate, making it a wonderful time-warp location for period and fantasy films, as well as historical documentaries.  Over the years, we have welcomed a long list of prominent film crews and actors to Parkwood, including X-Men, Mrs. America,  Umbrealla Academy, Nightmare Alley, Hemlock Grove and Anne with an E, to name a few!

How Film Production Fits

While it’s not our core business, filming gives us revenue that we need to continue to conserve and preserve the Estate for our visitors to enjoy for many years to come.  Filming is definitely not without its challenges because of the partial or full closures that are sometimes required, but we are doing our best to minimize the impact to each of you.

Filming is so popular at Parkwood that our Curator teaches a class to future Curators on the benefits and challenges of filming in historic sites and the best ways to deal with preservation concerns.
