Church Fenton Yorkshire Studios

'VICTORIA' filming at Church Fenton Yorkshire Studios: Mammoth Screen for ITV

Based at the former Leeds East Airport, this ex Royal Air Force base was originally home to the first RAF ‘Eagle’ Squadron of American World War II volunteers, made famous in the feature film Pearl Harbour.

The historic site, now redeveloped for film & TV use, includes three hangars totalling nearly 100,000 sq ft of internal production space, plus additional workshops and offices. It also has one of the biggest back lots in the UK – 440 acres of land with clear vistas, and a network of full width runways and roadways. Its scale and potential for production is almost unparalleled in the UK. Church Fenton Yorkshire Studios is currently home to Mammoth Screen, who have transformed stage 1 into the interiors of Buckingham Palace for ITV’s global hit, Victoria.
