Filming Locations of the Lost Boys
« on: September 01, 2016, 02:20:04 PM »
I really want to know! I'm guessing the Kensington Gardens scenes were really filmed in Kensington Gardens. What I'm most itching to know is about the filming location of Black Lake and the woods! But I would like to know all the filming locations.

Thanks to Jean-Benoit Louveaux, he told me the filming location of The Boy Castaways scenes, it was on the Longleat Estate!

That's so interesting, Dani. Thanks for sharing that piece of information. I never knew that.

The landscapes in the Black Lake scenes are filled with what appear to be evergreen trees, like the fir trees characteristic of British Columbia and New Zealand.  I've looked at online photos of Longleat and all I can see are deciduous trees.

I haven't been to Longleat for years so I can't say I remember the trees but I'm sure it must have evergreen trees such as fir and cedar as it's such a huge estate. Such as shame it couldn't be filmed at Black Lake itself, but as it's a private property, it's not easy to gain access.

Having never been to Scotland, my only impression of the landscape came from depictions in films and novels of the barren Scottish heath .  So just now I did some Googling and got myself a lesson in botanical geography:

Temperate coniferous forests are typically found in coastal areas with mild winters and heavy rainfall or inland mountainous areas with mild climates. Examples of where these forests are found are Pacific Northwestern United States and Canada, southwestern South America, Southern Japan, New Zealand and small parts of northwestern Europe (Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Norway).
