Here are three famous buildings, landmarks and houses in Buckinghamshire that have been used to shoot scenes on the big screen.

And no, we won’t be including any movies that have been shot at Pinewood Studios.

The Royal Standard of England, Forty Green

Officially regarded as the oldest pub in Britain, the Royal Standard of England in Forty Green near Beaconsfield has been used for scenes in the 2007 comedy flick, Hot Fuzz, and the 2014 Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything.

Mentmore Towers

Built in the 19th century between 1852 and 1854 for the Rothschild family in Mentmore, just outside of Aylesbury, the Grade I listed building has been used for several high-profile movies.

These include Batman Begins (2005), Johnny English (2003), Infinite (2021), Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Quills (2000) and Ali G in Da House (2002).

The venue has also been used for music videos, most notably ‘Goodbye’ by the Spice Girls which was shot in November 1998.

West Wycombe Park

Sticking with old estates, West Wycombe Park is another village that has been used to shoot famous movies.

These include A Clockwork Orange (1971), Labyrinth (1986), X-Men: First Class (2011) and Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) to name just a few.
