Dracula filmed at Mottisfont
The atmospheric Cellarium provided a backdrop for scenes in the BBC/Netflix production of Dracula, written and directed by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat.
Mottisfont provided the setting for Sister Agatha's workshop in the mini-series. Setting up and filming the scenes took place over two weeks in spring and early summer 2019, and the series was aired in early January 2020.
The Cellarium is the oldest surviving part of the building. Although it looks similar to a crypt, it served as a giant 'larder' for the priory, which was founded in 1201. Much of Mottisfont's medieval architecture has been hidden by subsequent reonvations, but this space offers a glimpse into our priory past.
All income received from filming goes back into conservation works here.
