“The Crown” Filming Locations
St. Andrews, Scotland
St. Andrews University in Scotland serves as the backdrop for the love story of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The picturesque campus, with its historic courtyards and dorm rooms, provides the perfect setting for the portrayal of the royal couple during their student days. Real-life students even managed to captured glimpses of the actors on campus.
Canary Wharf, London
Surprisingly, the iconic Canary Wharf in London stands in for the bustling city of Chicago in several scenes. The production team transformed the area, infusing it with American vibes, complete with hotdog stands, ’90s phone booths, and Chicago buses. The result is a seamless illusion that transports viewers to the heart of the Windy City.
Princess Diana’s post-divorce travels come to life in scenes set against the backdrop of Andratx, Mallorca. The stunning location, particularly the scenes on her yacht’s diving board in France, captures the essence of the European holidays that marked this period in her life.
Dartmouth House, Mayfair
While the final moments of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed are set in The Ritz in Paris, the actual filming took place at Dartmouth House in Mayfair, London. This elegant venue, now repurposed as an event space, provides the dramatic backdrop for these poignant scenes.
Lancaster House once again graces “The Crown” as the interiors of Buckingham Palace, a role it has consistently played throughout all six seasons. Situated on The Mall, adjacent to Clarence House and St James’s Palace, the mansion’s regal charm adds authenticity to the royal residence.
Ardverikie Estate steps into the spotlight as a stand-in for Balmoral, the royals’ castle in the Scottish Highlands. Beyond its role in “The Crown”, the estate is open for public tours and offers holiday cottages, providing enthusiasts with a chance to immerse themselves in the regal atmosphere.
