Filming in Yorkshire

Screen Yorkshire has helped bring hundreds of film & TV productions to Yorkshire and Humber, covering everything from period dramas to comedy and documentaries to long-running factual series. These programmes have been sold to territories all over the world and seen by millions. Off the back of TV and cinema success, thousands of tourists now flock to Yorkshire and Humber each year to explore in real-life the places they’ve watched on screen. Our website is designed to help visitors find their on-screen heroes in the flesh.

The majestic beauty of the Dales provides rich pickings for location scouts, with Yorkshire’s literary history evident at every turn. Yorkshire is distinct from other regions because of the diversity it offers. The architecture of its gritty urban textile towns contrast with the grandeur of its stately homes and mansions.
