Surrey’s Old Crown Court

cells-14Built in 1893 and designed by Architect Charles Henry Howell, Surrey County Hall is a grade II listed building with plenty to offer. It provides the perfect backdrop for any production, looking to film in a versatile and film-friendly municipal building.

County Hall boasts character with its original mosaic floors, stained glass window, and ornate Victorian décor. The building’s signature features include the Old Crown Court, Victorian cells, Grand Hall and marble lavatories.

The Old Crown Court itself, was modelled on The Old Bailey, which gives this space its unique edge. The wood-panelled room leads down into the Victorian cells, where productions can make use of the various quirky areas and features it provides.

We can also offer a selection of green rooms, an on-site area for a small unit base, and in-house catering (upon request).
