Location Tours

Follow in the footsteps of your favourite movie and TV characters with a tailor made location tour of the UK & Ireland. 

If you have enjoyed watching The Crown, the TV series about the life of Queen Elizabeth II, we have put together the perfect tour for you to discover Royal Britain. As well as including royal residences and key landmarks associated with the British Royal Family, our tailor-made tour also encompasses filming locations used in the drama.

The popularity of the latest TV adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small, based on the experiences of a Yorkshire veterinary surgeon in the 1940s, has brought to life the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside for a whole new generation of viewers. Why not follow in the footsteps of James Herriot on one of our location tours?

The first series of Victoria, which followed the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign after she acceded to the throne at the age of 18, proved to be a huge ratings hit – drawing over 16 million viewers in the US, putting it second only to Downton Abbey as the highest rated drama on PBS in the last 20 years. So, what better time to take a tour to the UK to follow in the Queen's footsteps?

Poldark, the TV remake of one of the most popular romantic sagas in British literature, has brought the wild and rugged landscape of Cornwall to the attention of a whole new generation of visitors to Britain. Come with us to see many of the Cornish landmarks that feature in the series, and where filming took place, from picturesque fishing villages to ancient smugglers' coves. Enjoy dramatic coastal vistas and the hospitality of traditional Cornish Inns; explore the wide and windswept moors and experience the workings of the fascinating Poldark Mine.
