|Official name:||Wayne Manor|
|Created by:|| Anton Furst|
Wayne Manor was the ancestral home of Bruce Wayne. He was raised there from birth, first by his father, Thomas Wayne, and mother, Martha Wayne, and after their death, by his butler and surrogate father, Alfred Pennyworth.
Several hidden entrances led to the Batcave, which rested underground, beneath Wayne Manor.
In the 1992 sequel, Batman Returns, the passage way to the Batcave was uncovered by turning on the lights of a miniature Wayne Manor in a nearby aquarium and dropping through a false floor in an iron maiden.

Background Information and NotesEdit
For the exterior shots of the mansion in Batman (1989), Knebworth House, a Gothic Tudor mansion 28 miles north of London, was used. The interior shots, however, were shot in Hatfield House, Hertfordshire; the gaming room from the movie used the mansion's long gallery, and the marble hall was used for Wayne's 'arsenal' with the two-way mirror.
In Batman Returns (1992), a scale model was used for the exteriors of Wayne Manor.
In response to the noted iron maiden entrance to the Batcave, Tim Burton remarks, "The iron maiden is a torture device, so you know, him being a tortured individual, you could see him connecting to that on some level emotionally and I thought it would be a good image."
The notion of opening a secret door to their hideout using a submerged model building in a fish tank reappeared in Red Robin #25, where Tim Drake used the ploy to access his new headquarters in Gotham.
- A majority of the manor's rooms had large mirrors which hid surveillance cameras for Bruce to keep an eye on key guests during galas and balls.
