Lullingstone Castle hosts meerkat advert filming

The latest Compare the Market meerkat advert 'Touch decision' has been filmed at Lullingstone Castle in Kent.

The meerkat have proved popular characters in car insurance commercials since 2009.

In the latest opus, CGI meerkat Aleksandr decides to provide another meerkat character Sergei with a laptop so he can stay up all night to deal with people comparing credit cards.

Tom Hart Dyke, creator of the World Garden at Lullingstone, said: "I am looking forward to showing them around Russia in the World Garden, though there’s less to see in their native Kalahari desert".

Visitors to Lullingstone can see the rooms where the advert was filmed – Sergei’s IT room is in the Great Hall, Sergei’s bedroom is the Ante Room and Aleksandr’s study is Queen Anne’s Drawing Room.

The advert can be seen here:
