oakley court bray hammer rocky horror picture show film location

Oakley Court is a Victorian Gothic country house overlooking the River Thames at Water Oakley in Bray in the English county of Berkshire. It was built in 1859 and is currently a luxury hotel. In the past, it has been often used as a film location.

Because it adjoins Bray Studios, the exterior of Oakley Court was used in the filming of a number of films including several Hammer horror films, such as The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Dracula (1958), The Brides of Dracula (1960, the main entrance was used as the entrance to Castle Meinster), Nightmare (1963, a girl’s school), The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), The Reptile (1966), The Plague of the Zombies (1966, Hamilton Manor), and the Amicus horror film And Now the Screaming Starts! (1973).

It is perhaps best known as Dr. Frank N Furter’s castle (called The Frankenstein Place) in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).

Other films that have used Oakley Court as a location are: The Man in Black (1949), The Old Dark House (1963), Witchcraft (1964), Die, Monster, Die! (1965), The Projected Man (1966), Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny, and Girly, (1969), The House in Nightmare Park (1973), Vampyres (1974), Dan Curtis’ Dracula (1974), The Mutations (1974). The 1976 mystery farce Murder by Death used the house for its setting.

In 2010, film critic Mark Gattiss paid a visit to Oakley Court for the ‘Home Counties Horror’ episode of the documentary series A History of Horror.
