Film office for Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders


John Alexander - 2020

"Filming in Edinburgh was a joy from day 1 of the scout to the last day of strike. I wish all cities were as film friendly and as Edinburgh! I can’t wait to bring another project back there soon! Rosie and her team at Film Edinburgh were a pleasure to work with."
Mark Ellis, Supervising Location Manager

Julian Fellowes new period drama Belgravia is a "story of secrets and dishonour amongst the upper echelon of London society in the 19th Century". The series stars Tamsin Greig, Harriet Walter, Alice Eve and Philip Glenister.

We were fortunate enough to be able to attract Carnival Films to shoot some of the series here in the Edinburgh city region in the summer of 2019. Keen eyes will spot Moray Place in Edinburgh's historic New Town standing in for Belgravia, Edinburgh's City Chambers as the Aldgate Hotel, and Parliament Square as London streets. Meanwhile, a great deal of the drama was filmed at Manderston in the Scottish Borders as well as Hopetoun at South Queensferry.

At the time of filming, producer Colin Wratten (Killing Eve) said:

Edinburgh is an extremely film-friendly city, which provides the perfect backdrop to Julian Fellowes’ story of 19th-century society, against which intrigue and dynastic power struggles play out. In addition to our central Edinburgh locations, we have the privilege of using the majestic stately homes of Hopetoun and Manderston, which will become key characters in this fantastic event series.

Belgravia is set be released in 2020.
