In the case of these movies, the usually tranquil Surrey is transformed into a scene of blood and gore… Look closely and you might spot a few familiar places, but make sure you’re feeling brave!

1.An American Werewolf in London (1981) – The Black Swan, Effingham

The Black Swan doubled as the ominously named Slaughtered Lamb in this cult classic starring Jenny Agutter and Brian Glover.

Tim Burton assembled an all star cast, including regular protagonists Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter - and decamped to Farnham.
