Lynford Hall


Lynford Hall, a neo-Jacobean country house close to Thetford, is now a hotel, but in the 70s and 80s was used several times as a filming location by the BBC.

It was a favourite for Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft shows especially, with ‘Allo ‘Allo!, Dad’s Army and You Rang M’Lord all using the site for shooting. And a few years ago Michael Portillo visited on one of his Great British Railway Journeys, discovering that the Hall was once considered for a royal residence by Queen Victoria, only for her to choose the far larger Sandringham to the north of the county instead.
