Laura Ashley Hotels in association with Elstree Studios and STUDIOCANAL
Laura Ashley The Manor Hotel in Elstree in Hertfordshire, is set among 10 acres of natural woodland and landscaped gardens, with panoramic views across the London skyline. Many television programmes and films have featured at The Manor, including The Avengers, Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and British comedy classic School for Scoundrels. The building’s original features have been largely restored to their former glory which you will see in School for Scoundrels which dates back to 1960.
On Sunday 29th May you can join us for a one-off screening of ‘School for Scoundrels.’
