In March this year, the Hunted crew came to Scotney Castle film various stunt and fight scenes in both the country house and oasts. Scotney Castle is a National Trust property which boasts a spectacular Victorian country mansion surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland, as well as a fairytale inspired castle ruin complete with a moat set in the beautiful Tunbridge Wells countryside.

Many other well-known productions have also chosen Tunbridge Wells to serve as a backdrop including Celebrity Antiques Road Trip (2012), How to Look Good Naked (2009) and Four Weddings (2010).

Don’t miss the first episode of Hunted on 4th October 2012 at 21:00 on BBC One.
