The ITV series Belgravia, which airs its last episode today, takes place mainly in 19th Century London.

But viewers of the show should also be able to spot Wrotham Park, near Potters Bar, which is where Lord and Lady Brockenhurst have their estate – Lymington.

Wrotham has been used before in other Julian Fellowes-written films such as Gosford Park and 2004’s Vanity Fair. The neo-Palladian English country house has also been used in the spy-action film series Kingsman.

Various other scenes in Belgravia were also filmed at Brocket Hall near Welwyn Garden City, which also has a rich history, having being used in Johnny English Reborn, The Queen, Willow and the 1995 adaption of Pride and Prejudice with Collin Firth.
