Straight in at Number 5 is Enfield Civic Centre!
Enfield Civic Centre provides a multitude of fantastic backdrops and varying rooms for filming including wonderful wood panelled rooms which can be easily partitioned off. The beautiful council chamber offers a great setting that doubles as a courtroom and underneath the building is a spacious underground car park with a stripped back / brutalist look.
Hot off the press at Number 4 is Salisbury House!
Salisbury House is a Grade II* listed late Tudor Manor House, built in the early 17th Century and once formed part of Bury Lodge. It is situated in the beautiful Bury Lodge Gardens on the borders of Edmonton and Bush Hill. The wonderful wood panelled Edinburgh Room is a great double for a traditional boardroom and the Tudor Room, located on the second floor in the eaves of the house has large wooden beams which complete the look.
Creeping into the bronze position, at Number 3 are the Empty Cottages!
These cottages offer spacious run down rooms including a large reception room at the back of the property and 2 good sized bedrooms on the first floor. With the right prep / dressing these cottages can be transformed into any look you’re after, or you can keep the derelict / abandoned feel to them. Outside the front of the properties there is ample space to facilitate and there are on site toilet facilities located nearby.
