Description

With the UK having such diverse scenery, architecture and history, it is no wonder that this glorious resource is exploited by the TV and film industries. If you’ve ever wondered where to find the real-life homes of Batman, Dr Frank N Furter or Truly Scrumptious or fancied walking in the footsteps of Poldark, The Vicar of Dibley or Doc Martin then look no further than these walks… Many of our stately homes, picturesque villages, rail stations, windmills and other landmarks have featured as the backdrops for the silver screen. Whilst indoor scenes are often filmed within purpose built studios, the outdoor scenes are generally reliant on real-life sets. Location scouts and dedicated location companies work full-time, matching story lines and characters with the best settings. The largest productions have multiple outdoor locations and sometime even continents can be relocated. So there’s a whole world of film sets to be discovered all across the country. We’ve collated some of the best walks that will lead you past a famous filming location. Discover the windmill of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", Wayne Towers in "Batman" and, the rail platform of "Brief Encounter". You can also visit the filming locations of some of the best British TV shows, including "Poldark", "Doc Martin","Midsomer Murders", "Father Brown", "The Vicar of Dibley", "Downton Abbey", "Heartbeat", "Doctor Who" and "Merlin"…

Lovely walk a few weeks ago with walking boots, quite muddy. Open fields, forest, picturesque village. Stopped at the garden centre for refreshments. Sheep, cows and many pheasants! Loved it

Lovely, interesting circular walk, with fairly strenuous uphills and downhills. Not as much walking besides the river as expected. Great care needed to scramble over rocks to the waterfall but worth it - not big but very pretty!

Nice little walk. Not too long. Was a little muddy so make sure you bring a good pair of boots. Nice cafe before you start.

Lovely for a Saturday morning stroll! Not too strenuous. Scrambling over to the waterfall was quite fun, but you don’t have to do that it you don’t want to (would recommend though). Bring sturdy footwear because it is muddy, but all in all a wonderful trip!

Easy walking with the vast majority on made paths and roads, with only the climb from Gordale to the top of the Cove is "Off Road" and a bit claggy. Limestone pavement at the top of the cove were super slippy... Be prepared!

Great!Rocky

Great trail, relatively easy walk. One steep climb which takes about 15 minutes max. Some of the path and ro ock is extremely slippy so proper walking shoes is a must. steep set of steps after the limestone path. whole thing was done in 2 hours.

Great walk gordale scar waterfall was well heavy falling in few places so didn’t climb the waterfall but instead worked our way round and ended up at the top of the waterfall from another route the started following the proper route again to get all the scenery in. Great scenes. Bit windy a little rain but all in all a great day out

Extremely muddy - if it’s rained at all in the past week, wear wellies! Great walk - lots of varied scenery and mix of paths, fields and quiet roads. Beautiful horses, deer and lots of sheep along the way.

WalkingGreat!

great trail, easy to follow and incredible sights along the way. Did Janet's Foss first and descended the steps at Malham cove last, much prefer going down all those steps than up them! worth doing the little detour at the bottom of the cove to get right underneath it, spectacular. Beware stones on the paths get slippy when wet so wear good walking shoes. went early morning mid week and it was getting busy then so can imagine it will be hectic at the weekend. loved this walk

HikingGreat!

Lovely walk, well signed with mostly good paths. Ideally need some decent boots or walking shoes for along the river to the falls. Lots of photo opportunities. If you're not too fit or just starting out then I'd recommend starting at the hotel first, down to the river then off to Beck Hole after the waterfall. Otherwise it'll be a very long, steep, slog back up to the hotel at the end of your walk if you go the other way.

A great walk with loads to see. We climbed the steps first (going clockwise) and then it was all easy going from there. Saw some brave folk swimming in Janet’s Foss - looked lovely but perhaps not in September!
