As House of the Dragons returns to TV, these are the other locations in Derbyshire where big films and television series have been shot

House of the Dragons fans have only a few days left to wait before their favourite programme airs its second series for which filming took place in Derbyshire.

Eldon Hill Quarry, Cave Dale and Castleton market place feature in the new series which starts its UK run on Sky Atlantic on June 17 at 9pm.

Derbyshire has long been a hot-spot for filming star-studded blockbuster films and TV series. Tom Cruise shot scenes for Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning in Stoney Middleton three years ago and was back to do more filming in the area in March 2024. Jude Law starred in Firebrand which was filmed entirely at Haddon Hall in 2022 and opened in the US this week, with a UK release date yet to be announced.

The Village, a BBC television series starring John Simm and Maxine Peake, was shot throughout the Peak District including Edale, Chapel-en-le Frith and Hayfield.
