Yorkshire is the setting for 'The Secret Garden', and we were so keen to film there. We could not have been more thrilled with our time in God’s own county! We filmed around the North York Moors, including the Duncombe Park estate, Helmsley Walled Garden, Rievaulx moor, the Roman Road near Goathland, and the North York Moors heritage railway. We also spent a memorable day at Fountains Abbey.
