Belton House in Lincolnshire was chosen as King George III’s home. In the series, George lives at Kew Palace but the production team was unable to film at the actual palace.

“That was a really fantastic find for us,” supervising location manager, Tony Hood, said. “It’s a National Trust property with really lovely grounds. The interiors really do lean towards this period. It’s run by a small and dedicated team, and they haven’t done any filming there since the 1990s.”

Other scenes filmed at Belton House include George’s observatory, his garden and the Buckingham House Orangery. Belton House is a Grade I listed country house and it was built between 1685 and 1687 by Sir John Brownlow.

Other movies that were filmed at Belton House include Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House and Jane Eyre, according to IMDb.
