Broughton Castle is a medieval manor house near the town of Banbury, Oxfordshire. It can be reached easily by train or car from London and is included in our London guide as an example of a day trip from the capital. The manor house and its evocative setting give you a wonderfully uncommercialised idea of England's past. It has also been an inspiration for film makers. Parts of the films Oxford Blues (1984),The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982), Three Men and a Little Lady (1990), The Madness of King George (1994) and Shakespeare in Love (1998) were shot in the castle. The castle has also been used as the location for several other films and TV programmes including an adaptation of Jane Eyre and Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. (Part of our London guide)
