Basildon Park is a rural residence from the second half of the 18th century. It was designed in the Palladian style at a time when it showed the strongest neoclassical tendencies. The interiors are kept in a characteristic, neoclassical, so-called Adamów style. Currently, the building belongs to the National Trust and houses a museum. In addition to the interiors, you can visit the adjacent garden and the extensive park.
During World War I, the residence was turned into a home for convalescent soldiers. In turn, during the Second World War, barracks and a training place for tankers were arranged on the property, followed by a prisoner-of-war camp.
In Basildon Park, scenes were made for films such as "Duma and Prejudice" (2015), "Maria Antonina" (2006) and "Portrait of Dorian Gray" (2009). The interiors were used as the Crawley family estate in London on the "Downtown Abbey" series.
