Where to Photograph Historic Houses in London

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Historic Houses within England. This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information.

Due to the large number of houses throughout England the list has been split into both county pages as well as alphabetically. To see a full list of the counties available take a look at our Historic Houses Section. You may also like to take a look at our Garden Section, where you will find more links and some houses that may have been overlooked here. There are other sections under Heritage that will also contain large historic properties, such as Castles, Abbey's and Living History.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.
