Bridlington - TV, Film & Literature

Bridlington - TV, Film and Literature header

The world’s paparazzi flocked to Bridlington in late 2014 to spot the stars of one of the biggest UK movies in years – the big-screen version of the much-loved Dad’s Army, which was mainly filmed in the Bridlington Old Town High Street and Market Place and the Flamborough Heritage Coast. Tom Courtenay (born in nearby Hull), Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Catherine Zeta Jones and Toby Jones are amongst the glittering cast of the movie, due for release in 2016.

TV dramas The Brides in the Bath and The Royal also featured Bridlington, and the BBC’s flagship rural magazine programme, Countryfile, has visited on more than one occasion, as has the long-running Coast.
