This adventure takes audiences across various dramatic locations, including magnificent country homes as well as more gritty urban settings.

There were 80 locations used in the series, most of which were “real-life backdrops”. These include:

Badminton House, Gloucestershire

Halstead Manor, where Eddie and his brother Freddie (Daniel Ings) were raised, was filmed at Gloucestershire’s Badminton House.

Speaking about Halstead Manor, co-writer and executive producer Matthew Read said it “sets the tone of The Gentlemen“. He also described it as “another character in the show”.

“It also connects to the history of aristocracy and to one of the show’s key themes of class. So as soon as Eddie turns up at Halstead, you understand so much about his character, his background and his life.

“And when the cocaine dealing scousers arrive there, the contrast between the two worlds is laid out right before you. It’s a brilliant shortcut to the heart of the story.”

“Badminton felt immediately right for Halstead because it’s a proper, lived-in home, rather than a National Trust museum,” said location manager Iggy Ellis.

“So inside there’d be some walking sticks by the door or a few shotgun rounds from where they’d been out shooting. There were cracks and tired bits, as you’d get in every family home. But there was also [an] oil painting and history and majesty. It felt perfect for our story.”

Ings added: “When it comes to capturing the essence of aristocracy, they [the locations] do a lot of the work for you.

“When you’re in those vast halls with their antiques and their huge 15ft oil paintings, you can’t help but get a sense of all the privilege and the history and the beauty.

“And when you’re standing there in a dressing gown with a vape and a shotgun, it also really helps to ram home that clash of styles.”

If you’re a fan of period dramas then you might recognise Badminton House from its appearances in other shows such as Bridgerton and The Pursuit of Love.

The property offers accommodation for visitors wanting to stay the night, which you can book on Booking.com.

Loseley Park, Guildford

While the series was mainly filmed at Badminton House, a few scenes are shot at this Tudor house, which was the hero location in Ritchie’s 2020 film.

Fans can visit the home and gardens during the summer months.

The Reform Club, Pall Mall

The Mayfair private members’ club doubles as Pinky’s Club in the series, where Eddie meets Stanley Johnston.

You’ll need a membership to access the club, unfortunately, but you can get a pretty good luck inside by watching the show.

Alperton Studios, London

Alperton Studios (in London) was used to “create some of the interiors”, such as a council flat in Croydon where Eddie “gets physical with one of Tommy Dixon’s goons”.

“You could never have filmed that scene in a real council flat because it doesn’t have the space,” said production designer Martyn John.

“So we built one three times the size with a corridor, a lift, a kitchen and a bedroom, and put a photographic backdrop at the window.

“When you watch the show, you’ll hopefully believe you’re in an actual council flat. I was really pleased with it.”

Wrotham Park, Hertfordshire

In the series, tycoon Stanley Johnston (Giancarlo Esposito) has an estate of his own. This was filmed at the neo-Palladian English country house of Wrotham Park, a location which also features in The Crown and Bridgerton season 2.

Wrotham Park is not open to the public but can be booked for private events.

The illegal boxing fight in episode two of The Gentlemen was shot at Rotherhithe’s Printworks in London.

Other locations in London include Canary Wharf’s Billingsgate Market, The Sekforde pub in Clerkenwell, and St Paul’s Church in Southwark.

The Magazine Building, North Greenwich

Greenwich Peninsular’s Magazine London features in another boxing fight scene later in the series.

“We were also shooting in Oxfordshire at this house that’s meant to be the home of Lord Whitecroft, who has also leased his land to the gangsters, and it’s a crumbling castle with a moat around it,” said Daniel Ings (who plays Freddy).

Stoke Court, Buckinghamshire

Various scenes set inside Halstead Manor were shot outside this 15th century Grade II listed house.
