Batman (Dir: Tim Burton, 1989)

Burton’s gothic version of New York, playground to the winged freak bat man, Gotham City, was built at Pinewood, where it spread out over 18 soundstages. The outside of Wayne Manor was Tudor, Knebworth House and the interiors were Hatfield House (also used in Orlando and Tomb Raider.). Rumour was that the studio wanted to use Battersea Power Station for Axis Chemicals but they instead used an empty power station in Acton Lane (Acton.), the outside of Axis is Little Barford Power Station, Bedfordshire. You can’t go inside the empty power station in Acton so it’s probably more interesting to see the exteriors. Hatfield House you can visit though and it’s pretty good, see: http://www.hatfield-house.co.uk/ and Knebworth House: http://www.knebworthhouse.com/
