Never mind Oscar – Movies in the Peaks!

The Oscars

The Oscars

Last weekend brought us the 2014 Academy Awards … the Oscars! But did you know that our very own Peak District is a STAR of the big and small screen alike?

Films like Jane Eyre, The Wolf Man, The Duchess, The Other Boleyn Girl and When Did You Last See Your Father were filmed, in part, on locations around the Peak District and Derbyshire. Have a look at our Peak District on film page to see how many you’ve seen!

There’s even a Jane Eyre trail you can follow (click to download pdf).

With beautiful locations like Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the surrounding landscapes it’s not really a surprise either!

Here’s Visit Peak District’s “mini movie”, which follows on from their fabulous “Get Here” – it gives you a brief taster of how beautiful the area is – we are lucky!
