Filming Locations Guide: The Enola Holmes House and School

Enola Holmes Filming Locations
Posted by
Enola Holmes was entirely filmed in England, featuring several historic homes and remarkable period buildings. Based on a series of novels of the same name created by Nancy Springer, the story takes a new perspective on the legendary British detective Sherlock, giving voice to his intrepid little sister, Enola.

You'll find a lot of familiar faces in the outstanding cast of the film: Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things stars as the title character, Henry Cavill as his brother Sherlock(The Witcher and Superman), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) as the elder sibling Mycroft, Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown, Fight Club) as their mysterious mother Eudoria and Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Harry Potter) as Miss Harrison.

Where was Enola Holmes filmed?

Enola Holmes House The Holmes house exterior is the 16th-century stone country home Benthall Hall near Telford in Shropshire. Film crews and local gardeners did magnificent work transforming the neat facade of the manor in Enola's neglected home covered by overgrown trees. As you can check out in the image, the fountain was also part of the set.

The vintage railway station Local press reported that the production was filming the train scenes in the Severn Valley Railway. This 16-mile heritage line is mainly powered by original steam locomotives, connecting a few towns across Shropshire and Worcestershire. Enola meets her brothers in the picturesque Arley train station. But the scene when the girl decides to run away from her destiny, taking a train to London, was shot at Kidderminster Town Station. Although this station was built in 1984, it looks gorgeous because it was designed in the late Victorian style.

Severn Valley Victoria Bridge The Severn Valley Victoria Bridge is a magnificent cast-iron structure built in 1862. However, the arch bridge pictured below, where Enola jumps with her new friend Lord Tewksbury (Louis Partridge) is a CGI creation. Image courtesy of Netflix - Map


Victorian London set in Greenwich The Greenwich Old Royal Naval College was transformed into a large piece of Victorian England. Fake storefronts of period business were erected in the section of College Way that intersects the main square. The scene when Enola reunites with Tewkesbury in Covent Garden was also filmed in the columns of the Greenwich campus. Image courtesy of Netflix and Google Maps


Fournier Street The Fournier St in Spitalfields, enhanced with some digital effects, also became a huge set to film a couple of scenes of the movie. Image courtesy of Netflix and Google Maps


Basilwether Hall The ancestral home of the Tewksbury family, Basilwether Hall, is the Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. Probably you've seen the grand rooms and halls of this opulent Jacobean state with large gardens featured before in productions like 1989's Batman, Taboo, Wonder Woman, or more recently in Hulu's series The Great. A key scene takes place in the elegant interior passage called the Armoury (pictured below), decorated with chequered black and white marble floor. Image courtesy of Netflix - Map


Shooting in Luton Hoo According to Radio Times, the scenes in London’s East End where Enola fights the bowler-hat wearing assassin, Linthorn (Burn Gorman), were filmed in some outbuildings at Luton Hoo estate. Image courtesy of Netflix - Map


Enola Holmes School The boarding school run by Miss Harrison is the superb Minley Manor in Camberley, Hampshire. This French-style manor house, built in 1860, is a private location that was also used to film scenes for Disney's 2018 The Nutcracker and the 2007 fantasy movie with Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer Stardust.

Sequence in the Houses of Parliament The exterior of King's College Maughan Library building on Chancery Lane doubled as the Houses of Parliament. As you can see in the selected screenshots above, there is a small mistake in the scene: The Big Ben appears twice in the background of the same sequence, in two different locations!

Enola Holmes drehort The white circular square at the end of the movie is located inside Her Majesty's Treasury building in Westminster. This fine interior courtyard is called Drum Court, but the statue of a queen in the middle was added later in post-production. Image courtesy of Netflix - Map
