"Harlaxton University, near..." United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path Tip by dinagideon

United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path: 419 reviews and 439 photos


Harlaxton University, near Grantham, England.
This here is a picture I took of Harlaxton on my last trip back, in the fall of 2000. This picture really highlights its eerieness.
I lived in this beautiful manor home for a half a year in Fall of 1995. You have to call or write or e-mail to be allowed a tour, but even if you just drive to the local town (Harlaxton) and park, you can walk the grounds and get a fabulous look at a real life fairy tale 'castle'. As I said in my intro, the movie the Haunting (1999) was filmed here (at least the outside shots). When you get there you will see why a scary movie would be filmed here. It is eerie! Living there was even eerier! The web addresses most beneficial are:
But this should not be missed if you are on your way to York, Scotland, or points north from London. Harlaxton is right off the A1!!...(thanks...stevenlilly!)
