Breath taking locations and a world class service

From its rugged landscapes to its manifold period properties, Yorkshire offers a wealth of locations for any film or television project.

Recent feature films to use the region as a backdrop range from Bollywood movie, Gold through to Oscar-winning titles Phantom Thread and Darkest Hour. Television titles include Doctor Who (BBC One) The Innocents (Netflix) Victoria (ITV) and Ackley Bridge (Channel 4).

Yorkshire’s skilled crews are also highly sought-after by filmmakers who choose to film in the region.

At Screen Yorkshire our production liaison team is Chris Hordley and Richard Knight – both former location managers with 40 years combined experience working on some of the UK’s best known and high profile productions.  They are on hand to offer on-the-ground expert advice and a one-stop-shop for all your filming needs.

I came [to Yorkshire] because I liked the locations. For this film, because it's a period film, I needed architecture that's been maintained… and Yorkshire seems to have a lot of that. They really seem to respect their heritage and look after it.
