Filming in the vale

In recent years the Vale has regularly been used for the filming of several top TV shows and films. If you're looking for a location for your production, we're sure you will find what you are looking for in the Vale.

We are a county of contrasts; miles of dramatic coastline backed by rolling countryside, small quaint Welsh villages, bustling market towns and large civic centres brimming with character and personality.

We have beautiful historic facades with equally as amazing interiors, busy retail areas with quality independent shops. A picturesque street scene both residential and retail and some areas that have proven perfect for the grittier of scenes.

With Cardiff on our doorstep, and excellent transport links (road, rail and air) the Vale makes for a great destination to use as a base for filming.
