Fun and Games visiting Real-Life Knightmare Locations

Post by DJOSKA87 » Tue Apr 21, 2020 11:27 am

I'm fortunate to live within the vicinity of some of the historic locations used in Knightmare (S4 onwards)- namely Castle Acre and Castle Rising.

I couldn't resist having some fun last year and came across a couple of pookas and a causeway on my travels...

Nice one, and I like how you've added the Pooka and causeway to the exact rooms used!

I visited Dragon Hall when I was in Norwich for the Knightmare Convention a few years ago, perhaps when this lockdown is over I can go and visit some of the others. Thankfully there's a whole list and a link to a map here to help me track them down.

Yes, the causeway room was a deliberate choice!

One of these days I'll get round to Dragon Hall, but it's not freely accessible because a writers' club occupy it full time now, I believe.

I do have this sort-of plan to make some sort of video documenting some of the Knightmare locations.
I did approach Epic Studios last year regarding visiting and taking some video of the spaces, but heard nothing in reply.

I have been in Epic as I spent a week working there on a film shoot in 2014.
They even had part of it curtained off in bluescreen!

Nice 'shopping there :)

Re: Video documenting some of the Knightmare locations

We did have a plan to start doing some more behind-the-scenes videos of this nature. We still have a bunch of footage from when we went to visit David Rowe a couple of years back, which I need to see if I can try and rescue in some way.

We also had some more advanced plans regarding behind the scenes footage, but in practice they have turned out to be a logistical (k)nightamre and expensive to boot, which hasn't helped. Perhaps when the current situation is a bit more open, we might look at them again.

On the other hand, I now have a big collection of completed Notmare videos ready to upload :)
