Filming in the Village

A lush location for any project

With its time capsule feel, beautiful architecture and green spaces, Port Sunlight is an ideal and popular film location.

We have welcomed TV crews from Michael Portillo’s Great British Railways Journeys, Antiques Road Show, Flog it! and Songs of Praise.

Port Sunlight has also welcomed larger film crews for feature length television programmes and films including the Oscar winning Chariots of Fire (1981), award winning TV series Peaky Blinders (2013-21) and the biopic of Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, Tolkien (2019).

Most recently, Bolan’s Shoes (2023) starring Timothy Spall was partly filmed in the village. A number of other exciting productions are due to be released in the near future.
