As these pictures show, an array of plants and greenery has been brought into the historic venue in preparation for filming to begin.

Meanwhile, crews were today arriving in the city in lorries ahead of fiming.

Tulip Fever is based on the novel by Deborah Moggach who also penned The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

The 17th-century romance tells the story of an artist who falls for a married young woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait.
