The Most Filmed Locations In The UK

Whether it’s the latest blockbuster, indie film, TV series, or TV advertisement, the UK is one of the world’s most popular filming destinations. From rolling countryside and historical monuments to bustling cities, the UK has it all, but where are the most filmed locations in the country? We thought we would take a closer look…


Glenfinnan Viaduct

The Glenfinnan Viaduct is one of the most iconic destinations in the Harry Potter world, often used in shots of the Hogwarts Express travelling over the 21 arches. It also featured in the second film when Ron and Harry arrive in the flying car.


Alnwick Castle

This ancient castle has appeared in countless films and television shows over the years, including Harry Potter, Transformers, and Downton Abbey.


Old Royal Naval College

London is one of the most popular filming destinations in the world, and the classic styling of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is a great choice for those looking to recreate the past. Films such as the Pirates of the Caribbean series, The Iron Lady, and Disney’s Cinderella have all utilised the college.


Bourne Woods

Most famously used as the backdrop for the opening fight scene in Gladiator, these beautiful woods have become a popular destination for filmmakers. In recent years, the likes of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Harry Potter, Snow White and the Huntsman and Wonder Woman have all utilised the woods.


Portobello Road

Most famously featuring in Notting Hill, the colourful buildings have also played a starring role in many blockbusters and over the years, including the Paddington movies and the Italian Job.
