Holy Grail on Hampstead Heath



Holy Grail on Hampstead Heath

Home to those Python men and scenes from the legendary film.

Location: Hampstead Heath, NW3 7JR

Description: Monty Python and the Holy Grail - a film that made Ben Hur look like an Epic - was a 1975 comedy gem from those Python men who created a new style of satire and humour that takes an enviable place in entertainment history.

Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin created this now legendary production and one of the many filming locations included London's very own Hampstead Heath.

It was here that scenes such as Arthur approaching the first castle and Lancelot's running to Swamp Castle were filmed. It is probably advisable to take a visit and re-enact these classic moments.
