Cotswold Film Tour


The Cotswolds offer a stunning backdrop for film production, and over the past five decades, numerous beloved films and dramas have been shot in this area. Our Cotswold Film Tour allows you to experience these breathtaking locations while exploring the beautiful countryside.

One of the most famous productions filmed in the Cotswolds is Downton Abbey, which used various sites across the region, including the picturesque village of Bampton, featured as Downton Village. On our tour, we will provide a guided visit to locations like the Downton Hospital, village pubs, and the Downton church, which has hosted several memorable events from the show. If you’re a fan of Downton Abbey and wish to see more filming sites, our dedicated Downton Abbey tour might be perfect for you.

The Cotswolds also boasts several Harry Potter filming locations, scattered throughout the area. We can show you scenes from sites like Lacock Abbey, which stood in as Hogwarts in two of the films, or Gloucester Cathedral’s cloisters, used in multiple scenes throughout the series.

In addition, the Cotswolds is home to many grand historic manors, frequently featured in productions like Poldark, Emma, and Wolf Hall, among others. As we journey through the villages, we will point out these notable locations.

The quaint and friendly Cotswold villages have also served as the setting for various dramas, such as the BBC series Father Brown, which is based in Blockley. The charming village church is recognizable in many episodes as Father Brown’s place of worship. The stunning village of Snowshill was transformed with fake snow for the filming of Bridget Jones Diary, during the scene where Bridget visits her parents at Christmas.
