Numerous films and TV shows have been filmed in Northumberland over the years, from Harry Potter to Downton Abbey.
Now is the perfect chance to catch up and watch them from the comfort of your own home.
Here’s our list of 13, with thanks to Northumberland Tourism for providing some of the suggestions….
1. Harry Potter
Alnwick Castle, otherwise known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, has a starring role in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Most famously, Alnwick Castle is the spellbinding backdrop for Harry and the gang’s first Flying Lesson, when poor Neville Longbottom goes off-piste on his broomstick and Harry flies through the grounds to catch Neville’s ‘Remembrall’.
2. Outlaw King
Several scenes from the Netflix film about Robert the Bruce starring Chris Pine were filmed in Berwick in October 2017, using the Old Bridge and the Quayside, with a number of locals appearing as extras. The Old Bridge was turned into medieval London Bridge and the Quayside into a medieval Glaswegian market.

One to binge-watch, ITV’s most-watched drama Vera takes full advantage of the county’s jaw-dropping landscapes. If you haven’t seen it, Vera is the protagonist of a British crime drama and Northumberland is her staggering side-kick. Spotted in the cobbled village of Blanchland, fishing villages Alnmouth, Amble and Craster (pictured) and on the rocky outcrops of The Farne Islands, Vera showcases the North East at its finest (…there’s no need for a green screen when you’ve got the North East as your backdrop).
4. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
A throwback to the early 90s, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves took advantage of more than one of Northumberland’s striking natural settings. Aside from its unusual and striking appearance, Sycamore Gap’s cameo in Robin Hood is probably the reason that it’s one of the most photographed trees in the county. If you’ve never seen it, it is a dip in the county’s National Park landscape, with a sycamore tree resting at its base, and Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman battled against villainous knights beside it.
