During Spring 2016 Raby Castle was transformed into a film set for the new and upcoming series of Victoria, premiering on Sunday 28th August on ITV.
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.
Here at Raby Castle we were thrilled to be chosen as a location for various scenes in the 8-part series. The programme will feature scenes from our very own Dining Room, Entrance Hall and Corridor, and even some outdoor scenes from the Terrace, Garden and Deer Park. So we’ll be looking out for Raby and its rooms in the background as the series progresses.
