Let your imagination run wild

Setting the scene for soaring superheroes, fantastical creatures and epic battles, Hertfordshire’s fantasy film heritage includes some of the biggest blockbusters of all time… The world-renowned studios at Leavesden and Elstree attract a huge range of large-scale Sci Fi and Fantasy productions due to their state-of-the-art facilities, huge range of stages and backlots and highly skilled technicians and creatives – and this means Herts can lay claim to cinematic classics from Star Wars to Harry Potter! Working alongside the studio bases, Hertfordshire also offers a stunning range of ‘location stunt doubles’ (think Hatfield House for a French Chateau in Wonder Woman or Knebworth House as Wayne Manor) which really help to bring this popular genre to life. With a huge range of locations to visit (and of course the thrilling visitor attraction Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ delivering the complete fantasy experience) there’s much inspiration to find in these fabulously fantastical locations. Read on for a deeper look into Hertfordshire’s starring role in some of our favourite big-budget fantasy blockbusters!

A crime to miss it!

Intrigue, mystery, deceit combined with fascinating characters and incredible story-telling - the winning formula for the perfect Crime drama! We absolutely LOVE a good Crime story here in the UK and have a long history with the popular genre starting with writers such as Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - writers who knew exactly how to create those recurring characters that capture hearts and minds over and over again. From classic shows such as Sherlock Holmes, Midsummer Murders and Inspector Morse to more modern productions such as Dr Foster and Hot Fuzz, Herefordshire is proud to have created some of the best Crime Film and TV stories and characters right here in the county. With such an incredible slew of productions under its belt, it’s easy (it’s elementary, surely?! ) to see how Hertfordshire became the filming centre for the Great British crime drama obsession…
