The estate almost touches the A1(M) motorway near Welwyn Garden City which is on the opposite side of the motorway; administratively and historically it lies at the extreme northern end of Hatfield.
Brocket Hall has been used as filming location for a number of large-scale film and television productions, including Night of the Demon (1957), Murder with Mirrors, Johnny English Reborn, The Queen, Willow and Pride and Prejudice featuring Colin Firth. It also features as the home of character Paul Eirl in the Inspector Morse episode, “Who Killed Harry Field?” (1991) and can be seen in the Agatha Christie’s Poirot episode “The Labours of Hercules” (2013). Brocket Hall was also in Holby City for a wedding. The same venue was used in the Shakin’ Stevens Video of “You Drive Me Crazy” in 1980. The British pop group Steps used it as the location for their 2001 music video for “It’s The Way You Make Me Feel”. Queen Victoria is seen visiting Lord Melbourne at Brocket Hall in several scenes of the ITV drama Victoria.
