Visit the old house where the BBC’s hit show “Ghosts” is filmed for a frightening tour.
The third season of the television show Ghosts is presently airing, and viewers will learn more secrets about the past lives of the residents of Button House. Fans can visit the location where the sitcom is situated after the final episode airs on September 13.
To summarize the plot of the hit BBC drama, Alice (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mark (Kiell Smith-Bynoe) are a married couple who discover that Alice’s deceased aunt left her mansion to her niece. The couple is ecstatic about their unexpected riches, but they had no idea that Button House is haunted by many ghosts from various periods in history.
As the series progressed, viewers were able to learn more about each dead resident’s past.
The scary sitcom is shot in West Horsley Place in Surrey, a Grade I listed building that dates back to the 15th century and serves as the main set.
Viewers may recognize some of the interior and exterior sets used for filming sequences with 50 rooms and a 380-acre estate to explore.
Guests can enter the library, the house’s oldest wing, which dates from 1425 and is stocked with thousands of books on dark oak shelves.
Another well-known space is The Stone Hall, which has a long and illustrious history of its own.
King Henry VIII gave the house to his cousin, Henry Courtenay, and it is said that His Majesty ate a 35-course lunch there.
The Drawing Room, which is located upstairs and is furnished in eye-catching tones of red silks and patchworks, is arguably the most remarkable room in the house.
The Crown, The Durrells, and Vanity Fair are just a few of the TV productions that have utilised the ancient structure for period drama scenes.
Lord Berners and Conservative MP Henry Currie were among the previous owners of the red brick business.
However, West Horsley Place made headlines in 2014 when its previous owner, Mary Innes-Ker, Duchess of Roxburghe, died at the age of 99.
The mansion was inherited by her great-nephew, broadcaster, novelist, and former University Challenge presenter Bamber Gascoigne, just like the main character Alice in the film “Ghosts.”
Despite having other living descendants, the Duchess had bequeathed the entire estate to him, much to the amazement of the 80-year-old.
Bamber auctioned several of his great-belongings aunt’s to help pay for the multimillion-pound repair of the run-down mansion, including her engagement ring, which went for £8.8 million.
