Raby Castle doubles as palace in £10m TV epic Victoria


During Spring 2016 Raby Castle was transformed into a film set for the new TV series of Victoria.

Victoria, a British drama, follows the early life of Queen Victoria, from her accession to the throne at the age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. The eight-episode series includes Doctor Who and Emmerdale star Jenna Coleman as Victoria, alongside other names such as Eve Myles, best known for her role in Torchwood.

The programme will feature scenes from Raby Castles Dining Room, Entrance Hall and Corridor, and even some outdoor scenes from the Terrace, Garden and Deer Park.

If you stay with us at New Cottage, you will be just round the corner and can easily visit and see all the beautiful settings featured in the TV programme. Book your stay now
