This 19th century building of 4200 square meters, inaugurated in 1869, employed up to 2000 people at the height of its success, at the turn of the 20th century, then was closed to later serve as sets for films and English series . Two particularly popular shows have partly been filmed there in recent years: Downton Abbey and Peaky Blindersas well as the movie Golem, the London Slayer, released with Bill Nighy in 2016 or more BBC productions.
