Cotswolds TV & Film

The Cotswolds and Forest of Dean - Britain's Rural Capital of Culture, is full of surprises for film and TV fans. We've had some big productions here such as Harry Potter, James Bond in Die Another Day, Bridget Jones's Diary and Doctor Who.
Film location managers and visitors alike love our rural scenes, historic pubs, ancient buildings and market squares.
The area attracts its share of celebrity residents too. Exactly where they live is secret of course, but we've dropped the odd hint - it really is surprising how often they're spotted at restaurants, attractions or pubs across the Cotswolds and Forest of Dean.
