TV filming locations to explore on your caravan staycation

Arley Hall in Cheshire

Forget Hollywood, it’s all about the TV filming locations here in the UK, which are easily visited on your caravan holiday this summer.

As part of its Sunny Staycations campaign, Uswitch has created a list of destinations to explore if you’re a fan of some of the biggest TV shows of the last few years.

Many of the locations are situated close to caravan parks, enabling you to easily incorporate them into a trip away with your leisure vehicle.

Kynance Cove – Poldark

Cornwall is a popular destination for caravanners, but fans of Poldark will have an extra reason to visit, as some of the show’s key scenes were filmed with the white sand and blue sea background of Kynance Cove.

Arley Hall – Peaky Blinders

Step inside the library at Arley Hall in Cheshire and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stumbled across a gang leader’s study at the start of the 20th century. That’s because the manor doubles up as Tommy Shelby’s Arrow House in Peaky Blinders.

Belvoir Castle – The Crown

While a number of castles across the UK were used in the filming of The Crown, it was the interior of Belvoir Castle that doubled up as the most famous royal residence, Windsor Castle. Book a visit to take in the sumptuous decor and regal vibe.

County Wicklow – Vikings

Take your caravan over to the east of Ireland to experience the life of a Viking among the fairytale forests and tranquil lakes. County Wicklow’s scenery is just as dramatic as the action played out in the show.

Highclere Castle – Downton Abbey

Want to see the bedroom where Lord and Lady Grantham sleep in Downton Abbey? It’s located at Highclere Castle in Hampshire and decorated in the most elegant style by Lady Carnarvon, who calls the impressive property home.
