21 Aug Blockbuster Homes Near Local Film Studios
Everyone dreams of living a life like those we see on the silver screen; one where every day is sunny, the grass looks impossibly green, and you wake up looking immaculate without even trying. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that’s ever going to happen!
You can, however, get a taste of the movie lifestyle by looking for property to buy in Upper Longcross, conveniently located next to the major, Hollywood-worthy Longcross Studios. You’ll be side-by-side with A-list celebrities, and every day will be like being on a film set.
Having only been open since 2006, Longcross Studios has been home to movie stars, directors, and films that would make any film-fanatic excited. In such a short space of time, they’ve become the UK’s answer to Hollywood, and Upper Longcross has been transformed into a blockbuster neighbourhood.
Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks are all among the endless list of major actors who have headed to Longcross Studios and the surrounding Upper Longcross Estate to shoot. Directors such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg have all worked here, and the list of films includes the following:
- Thor 2
- Fast & Furious 6
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Doctor Strange
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- War Horse
Pretty impressive! The studios themselves offer 4 studios, a 200-acre backlot, and a 150-year old manor house, amongst plenty of other spaces. The surrounding beauty and nature of Upper Longcross also provides many wonderful locations, and staying nearby is surely a delightful experience for the cast and crew!
