Filming at Harrow
Harrow School has provided the backdrop to many feature films, dramas and photoshoots over the past 20 years. We have provided the location for films including Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and dramas such as The Crown and Dr Foster. The School has provided the backdrop for magazine shoots for GQ, Vogue, Burberry and Penguin Originals, and has been the subject of historical documentaries.
We firmly believe in being a film-friendly venue, and one that offers more than just one location. With 250 acres of countryside in north London, and a variety of buildings dating between 1615 and 2011, we have a location for every occasion.
The School has its own unit base for up to 100 cars. It is only ten miles from Central London by car, or a 15-minute ride to Baker Street on the Metropolitan Line from Harrow on the Hill Underground station.
Over the years, we have listened carefully to location managers about what they are looking for. This website is a product of that knowledge and allows you to browse the locations we have available to you. We have arranged locations by category to help your search. We keep adding locations, so please do check back on a regular basis.
It is very important to note that we are a school, so availability is limited, but we do have 18 weeks a year in which filming can take place. We like to create long-term relationships with location managers who understand the heritage and culture associated with such a historical space. Please contact us for more information
