Carousel Court, Canterbury
Pretty Georgian manor house set in sumptuous gardens and surrounded by lakes and a farm. It offers a broad and eclectic range of film and photographic backdrops.
The house and the old-fashioned farm buildings are home to an eccentric collection of antique objects including the Steam Museum collection of machinery. This is a huge assemblage of vintage steam engines, agricultural machinery, industrial and marine objects, plus a number of fairground rides and mechanical organs. There is even a steam tug boat, moored at nearby Ramsgate.
The wider estate also contains a number of large ‘secret’ lakes along a stretch of river. This little known area is hidden away from public roads, but with good access and parking. Teeming with birds, it is a very beautiful, natural place whilst being quiet and secluded.
