Enola Holmes filming locations: Where is Ferndell Hall?
Ferndell Hall, which is the Holmes family estate, was filmed in two separate locations.
The exterior is actually Benthall Hall, which is an estate in Shropshire. To bring Ferndell Hall to life, production designer Michael Carlin explained to Netflix that the actual Benthall Hall gardeners allowed "the gardens to get really overgrown and letting us drape overgrown vines all over the exterior.”
The interiors of Ferndell Hall, including Eudoria's bedroom, the kitchen and the library, were filmed in West Horsley Place in East Sussex. Carlin explained that his production team were able to have free rein in the house, spending weeks bringing the Holmes matriarch's world to life.
Enola Holmes filming locations: Where did they film in London?
After escaping the train with Lord Tewkesbury, Enola finally ends up in London. And while these scenes were actually shot in the city, a little bit of not-so-secret movie magic was used to bring Victorian London to life.
Greenwich Naval College was used to welcome Enola to London. The location is a popular choice for filmmakers, with the college appearing in films like Les Miserables, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The King's Speech and Thor: The Dark World to name a few.
The production crew built shop facades on a huge set in Greenwich to achieve the vibe of a bustling city.
Standing in for the gritty East End, which is the location of Enola's backstreet fight with Linthorn, is a series of outbuildings in Luton Hoo.
