Hammer house of horror (Bray film studios)

Down Place was a 17th century house near Bray, and the base for the Kit-Kat Club (a political association committed to the Whig cause).

 

It remained a private house until 1949, when it began to be used as a film studio. Hammer productions used it as a location from 1950, and was based here until 1966. The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Abominable Snowman, and Rasputin - the Mad Monk were filmed here.

 

The studio is now used for film, TV, commercials, and recording.
