Film​ & ​photo location

Norwich Cathedral and its surrounding area are picture perfect, which has led to it becoming a popular choice as a film and photo location.

The settings in which to film or take pictures are varied, owing to the magnificence of the Cathedral building itself, as well as the picturesque nature of The Close.

In recent years we have welcomed film crews working on high-profile films, as well as episodes for well-known television series.


  • Dean Spanley
  • Jack the Giant Slayer
  • Tulip Fever

Television programmes / documentaries

  • Antiques Roadshow
  • Flog It!
  • Blitz Cities

We are also a firm favourite with commercial photographers, working on shoots for publications, couples (including engagement and wedding photography) and individuals.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of filming or taking photography at Norwich Cathedral please contact our Estates Manager, who will be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
