The Circus comes to Blythe House

As seen in the superb 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' remake

Description: Blythe House, a treasure trove of fascinating artefacts from the V&A archives, is the storehouse for the archive of Art and Design, the V&A Theatre and Performance collections and the Beatrix Potter Collections.

It is also a sought after film location.
