If you’ve ever wondered where your favourite TV series was filmed, or been momentarily distracted by a stunning view in the background of a film and thought you’d like to go there, you are not alone. In fact, screen tourism is a growing phenomenon with more people than ever choosing to visit a location they’ve seen on screen. Whether you are inspired by the dramatic scenery or want to re-live your favourite screen moments you are in good company.
Lancashire’s historic buildings, countryside and seaside resorts have provided a backdrop for a wide variety of TV programmes and film, some you might have spotted and others that were cleverly disguised. Here's some to name but a few:
Three Men and a Little Lady – Stonyhurst College
Stonyhurst is probably most famous for its appearance in the 1990 film Three Men and a Little Lady sequel to ‘Three Men and a Baby’ starring Tom Selleck and Ted Danson. The production filmed exteriors of the College. It was also featured in the Ghostly TV movie Tractate Middoth directed by Mark Gatiss.
