Chavenage House, Tetbury
Poldark is a big hit at the moment and whilst it is set in Cornwall, Ross Poldark’s family home “Trenwith” is actually Chavenage House in Tetbury which is open to the public.
Chickflick fans will probably be able to recognise the church in the quintessential village of Snowshill was used in the Bridget Jones films.
The village of Bampton (where Rose, Owl & Snipe barns are located!) was used as the fictional village of Downtown in the very successful Downton Abbey series.
Gloucester Cathedral was used for Hogwarts school. The cathedral’s historic cloisters were used for the school’s corridors and the door at the end of the West Walk was used as the entrance to the Gryffindor common room.
Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire
