Where Were They Filmed?
People have a fascination for where their favourite movie or television shows was filmed, and the fact that a town can be used as a location for film or television series can turn the whole place into a tourist destination, as the town of Holmfirth in Yorkshire attests. During the couple of dacades in which the TV series Last of The Summer Wine was shot there, the town’s fame grew and today, even though filming finished a numver of years ago, hundreds of people come to have a cuppa at Syd’s Cafe or have their photo taken on Nora Batty’s steps. The towns listed here are some of the many that have become tourist meccas for no other reason that the shows that have been there.
Not all TV shows and movies are filmed at a single location, or use a whole town as the set for their stories. Sometimes it’s just a house or other kinds of building that features prominantly and becomes the place where fans come to pay homage to their favourite TV shows. We have compiled a list of some of these locations separately, which can be accessed via the links below.
