Film and TV

Many and varied are Oxford and Oxfordshire's film and TV locations. Sometimes the place is as important as the main characters in the series (as Oxford in Morse and Lewis), at other times it's an unnoticed setting for the action (Blenheim Palace in Harry Potter).

Take a look at these locations and the films and TV creations, from the small screen with 'Downton Abbey' to the fantasy-adventure film 'The Golden Compass'. Or use the links below to explore Oxfordshire's most well known connections, those of Inspector Morse and now Lewis, Harry Potter and Midsomer Murders.
