Films in the Park

Pembrokeshire’s panoramic views, dramatic coastline and unspoilt sandy beaches have been captured on the silver screen throughout the last five decades.

Some of these films are as varied as they are internationally renowned. From Vanity Fair (Tenby Beach) to Round Ireland with a Fridge (Manorbier) and of course, Robin Hood and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One (Freshwater West), Pembrokeshire’s Coast has gone through many guises.

Pembrokeshire’s landscape has been graced by actors such as Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Emma Watson, Gregory Peck, Anthony Hopkins, Peter O’Toole, Richard Burton, Kirsten Stewart…the list goes on!
