Johnny Depp could be heading to Syon Park, where filming for Through the Looking Glass is rumoured to be taking place next week.

Syon House, in London Road, Brentford, will be closed to the public from this Sunday (August 3) to next Thursday. The gardens and Great Conservatory will remain open except for on the Thursday, when they too will be closed.

According to the rumour mill, a Hollywood film crew is descending on the building to shoot the sequel to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, starring Johnny Depp.

Those rumours gained credibility this week when pink signs appeared pointing towards the park, bearing the letters 'LG' - possibly standing for 'Looking Glass'.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which is producing Through the Looking Glass, said it was unable to confirm when and where filming was taking place.

A spokeswoman for Syon Park, which is owned by the Duke of Northumberland, said the site would be closed due to a 'private event' and it could not comment further.

Syon Park is a popular location for films, especially period dramas, with Belle among the movies recently shot there.

Johnny Depp was pictured earlier this month on the set of Black Mass in the US, for which he sported a balding head and stained teeth.

It has been reported elsewhere that scenes for Through the Looking Glass are due to be filmed in Gloucestershire Docks next month.

Hounslow Chronicle news editor Chris Longhurst spotted this sign pointing towards Syon Park this week. Could it be there to guide film crews to the set of Through the Looking Glass, starring Johnny Depp?
