A Palace fit for an Emperor

A Palace fit for an Emperor

The epic new Napoleon film was largely filmed at Blenheim Palace

You will once again be able to spot Blenheim Palace on the big screen...

The action-packed film, Napoleon, is due for release on Wednesday 22nd November 2023, by Apple Original Films and Sony Pictures. Directed by Ridley Scott, who also serves as one of the producers, and written by David Scarpa, the spectacle-filled film is based on the true story of Napoleon Bonaparte, focusing on the French leader's rise to prominence and power.

From intense battle scenes in the Blenheim Estate and external grounds to romantic ones within the Palace’s Great Hall and Library, Main Saloon and the State Rooms, Sir Ridley and his team were at Blenheim Palace for nearly a month. You will see the Palace change from France, to Italy and even the Kremlin.

Our UNESCO World Heritage Site serves as a fantastic backdrop for filmmakers seeking opulence and history.
