Explore UK Film and TV Walks - view hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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"…

Never did I expect it to be so good, we couldn’t stop saying wow and taking 100s of photos! It was very muddy and rocky but we don’t like simple we love a good challenge so we enjoyed that the most! if my 70 year old Nannie can do it anyone can! What a fabulous day we have had and I can’t wait to return in the summer! the waterfall was just something else I could of spent my whole life there.

A great walk to explore Winchester and the surrounding countryside. completed it in about two hours with a stop off for a quick pint at the Wyckham Arms in the town centre and a trip inside the Cathedral.

I would recommend this trail to everyone. it is nice and flat so well suited for anyone who struggle with incline or tougher terrain, young children, dogs or with bikes. the trail is very well kept with plenty of benches and picnic tables. There are some beautiful views and scenery; and the trail is very open to plenty of sun but can feel the wind due to dips at either side of the walkway at times. There is a nice little cafe and set of toilets at the start/end of the walk also.

lovely walk. The falls and river are amazing. The walk meeds to be edited though as the paths don't take you directly next to them. we had to go a bit off course. Parts are not dog friendly as a lot of sheep. awesome overall. Luke, Sarah & Missy

Pleasant walk to visit waterfalls and surrounds. Mainly well used paths, easy to follow. Popular with families and dog walkers.

Great walk. We parked up and started at the refreshments van near Janet’s Foss as we couldn’t get parked in the village. Just turn right at the buck inn and keep the other pub on your left and carry on up that road for about a mile and a half and you’ll come to the refreshments van.We did Gordale Scar 1st and then up and over to Malham Cove then down the steps -which is probably the easiest route. Watch the limestone steps as they are very slippery when wet. Into the village for a quick pint and then along the river and woodland to Janet’s Foss. Came back out at the car .a great day!

Part of the trail closed but very simple to find an alternative route. An easy walk, easily done in 2 hours with gorgeous views

Parts of the trail have been closed off by Cardiff Council with no alternative signage or directions. Flooded and overgrown in areas with little maintenance from the council.

Very nice trail. I like a bit of elevation, as this way you get views and a good workout. this trail is perfect for that

Great walk by the Thames!

Beautiful views of Blockly and agriculture and sheep and cows. Plenty of food and drinks at both ends. Highly recommended.

this is an ok walk, good for first timer's, personnally prefer something more challenging. may say free entry but car park is £3+ is picturesque, wouldn't bother putting all your hiking gear on

If your on holiday this is a must do, we had a sunny warm day , walked to the waterfall first around to the gorge then to the Plato then down the many steps which worked for us , the views were amazing

Take my dog down this pretty regularly, great easy walk with nice views and sometimes there’s a food van next to the skatepark so that’s nice

nice little walk for me and my dog Jensen. No issues on route

Lovely day on on this loop. Fantastic afternoon bbc or the family with a steady climb up towards Malham Cove.

An absolute must for a route with kids in tow. Janet’s Foss is at the end if a Fairytale walk along a secret, moss lined stream before the awesome gorge of Gordale Scar. The route up to the top of Malham Cove is via some steep steps, but the view is worth it. Good selection of pubs in the village on the way back.

Lovely little trail, not far at all but so nice to see the falls.

Absolutely beautiful!!

Well worth the walk. Would suggest walking anti-clockwise.
