The Midnight Hour

Clock Tower

Clock Tower

This magnificent gold clock tower at Cliveden House UK was used to chime the hour of midnight in the movie Cinderella.

See, you learn something new every day!

There is a sumptuous, gold, mirrored dining room in the house (no photos were allowed) that was used in a few movies too; one of which was Sherlock Holmes, where Robert Downey Jr was tied to the bed!

I know! I walked in the same room that Robert Downey Jr walked in.

Small world!

      Cinderella was released earlier this year – I watched it on the plane on the way home. šŸ™‚ The Sherlock Holmes movie was made in 2009. Sadly I had nothing to do with any of this – just a visitor in the house long after the filming šŸ™‚

      hahaha Girl after my own heart! We’d been shown all round the house – yes, v interesting – old stuff, dark paintings etc, then at the end the guide tells us about movies made there! Now I’m listening šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚
      To think I stood in the very room where Robert was mostly naked on a bed – albeit years ago – well how cool is that? šŸ™‚
