A Stunning Backdrop

Parkwood Estate is a film-maker’s dream. One visit to our beautiful Estate will be enough to spark your imagination. Come and see the amazing possibilities this magnificent Estate offers. From the great pillars at the front entranceway to the rod-iron cantilever staircase, the bowling alley, 1917 kitchen or the stately dining room, Parkwood has been carefully preserved and conserved.

Film Production at Parkwood

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 distinguished list of film crews and actors, making everything from episodes of television shows Murdoc Mysteries, The Expanse, Hemlock Grove and Anne of Green Gables; to feature films like HollywoodLand, X-Men, Amelia or documentaries such as CNN – The Kennedy Dynasty.

Filming in Historic Sites

Although an ancillary business, filming provides much needed revenue to ensure we can continue to conserve and preserve the Estate for visitors to enjoy for many more years.  Filming is not without its challenges however, as it means we must have partial or full closures for our tours on certain filming dates.

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 ways in which you can deal with preservation concerns.
