Photo Shoots, Film Sets and Product Launches

Sweeping Parkland, rugged Woodland and 13 beautiful ‘garden rooms’ means Borde Hill has a wealth of unique locations available for hire for filming, photoshoots and product launches.

Location Shoots

A broad canvas of inspirational locations.

Whether you are looking for photoshoot backdrops, commercial or film sets, Borde Hill with its rich plant heritage, panoramic views and atmospheric buildings offers a broad canvas of inspirational locations. Recent photoshoots include Harpers Bazaar, Manolo Blahnik, L.A Brewery and Marfa Stance.

Our 16th century Elizabethan mansion has period rooms dating up to the Edwardian age and has been featured in films and TV, as well as used for radio recordings and product launches.

The 383 acres of protected Parkland and Woodland offer an atmospheric backdrop with stunning vistas whatever time of year.

Our Victorian Glasshouse is also available for photoshoots – located within the Garden, it’s home to a collection of cacti and southern hemisphere plants and retains its original wrought iron features.

All the money we make from location fees goes back into the Garden to safeguard our nationally important plant collection for generations to come.

For those looking for something extra, we’ve teamed up with a selection of neighbouring Sussex attractions to offer contrasting day packages to groups of 15+ people.

Garden Map

View a map of our nationally important English country Garden. Most paths in the formal Garden are step-free and accessible to those with restricted mobility. However, there are some steps and steep slopes which are indicated on the map.

There are plenty of benches located around the Garden for relaxing and taking in the sights should you want to stop for a rest.
