Queen Elizabeth I was raised here — and this was where she learned that she was going to be the Queen. So it's right at home as a set in The Crown.

Renting out Westminster Abbey is a privilege reserved for real-life royalty, so the producers of The Crown had to settle for Ely Cathedral for their mock royal wedding. Unlike Westminster Abbey, Ely Cathedral sits outside London, in Ely, a town near Cambridge. However, they're similar: Both are in the Norman style and share a striking resemblance from the outside.

If you'd rather visit the place with actual historical ties, it's easy to do: Westminster Abbey, the real site of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's wedding, is open to visitors nearly every day of the year, and is quite a sight to see. Besides the incredible architecture, the church is also the final resting place of many a famous figure, like Queen Elizabeth the first and Sir Laurence Olivier.

This West End theater is still in operation, but in The Crown it played host to a royal gala — you know, the one where Elizabeth broke out her tiara and Philip broke out his tux. If you visit the theater today, you can take in a showing of The Lion King, too!

This stately home hasn't only made appearances in The Crown, but in The King's Speech, too.

SLAINS CASTLE AND CRUDEN BAY
In 1952, the Queen Mother purchased an estate in Scotland called Castle Mey, which she used as a holiday home. Today, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (or in Scotland, Duchess of Rothesay) stay at the castle annually. To stand in for Castle Mey in The Crown, Slains Castle in Scotland was used — as was the nearby Cruden Bay, where Claire Foy takes a horseback ride.

Before the Queen got her crown (or her title!), she and Prince Philip lived at Clarence House, which is still home to the heir to the throne, Prince Charles — though he's lived there for much longer than his parents ever did!

After Clarence House comes the big one: Buckingham Palace. As the Queen still lives there, it wasn't used during filming. We do, however, see the outside multiple times. It's open to visitors for a few weeks every summer, so plan your trip accordingly!
