5 TV shows filmed in Bradford

5 TV Shows Filmed in Bradford

Recently there was a buzz around my local town of Bingley as the cast and crew of Gentleman Jack spent a couple of days filming there. They transformed the outside of The Old White Horse on the cobbled Old Main Street as they filmed for their new series.

It got me thinking about other TV shows and films which have been shot in and around Bradford. Thanks to Screen Yorkshire, our county of Yorkshire has had lots of filming. In fact, I once went to a film discussion where all the benefits of shooting a TV show or film in Yorkshire were shared. For production companies, it’s cheaper to film in Yorkshire than in London and you have access to the beautiful countryside – I couldn’t agree more.

Alongside Gentleman Jack, some of your favourite TV shows have been seen in Bradford. Soaps such as Coronation Street have filmed outside the Town Hall and over in Esholt, it was the home of Emmerdale for many years.

The English Game

One day last summer I was out for a walk in Saltaire and came across the filming of the Netflix series, The English Game. Victoria Road had been transported to a street back in time. The shop fronts and road and been altered to give an appearance of the 1880s.

The ABC Murders

As I was watching the ABC Murders starring John Malkovich, I thought I recognised a street in Saltaire. A quick google and I was correct, filming took place around Saltaire village including Salts Mill and at the Worth Railway in Keighley.

Gentleman Jack

As mentioned above, Gentleman Jack, recently filmed in Bingley. They have also shot on locations in Little Germany in Bradford and Broughton Estate in Skipton.

Gunpowder

Starring Kit Harrington and Liv Tyler, I was first aware the TV show Gunpowder was being filmed locally when some of the cast were pictured enjoying food at one of my favourite Saltaire cafes, The Terrace. The show filmed on locations at Bradford College, East Riddlesden Hall and Ilkley Moor.

Bradford is a great place for on locations shoots as we have buildings full of heritage and history plus the countryside and the views which make it an ideal place to film.

Of course, there are plenty of other shows which have been filmed in the area plus lots of films too!
