Once in the village continue in a westerly direction along Merthyr Mawr Road, passing the village church on your right-hand side, for a distance of around three kilometres (two miles) until you come to the main car park, which has room for approximately 100 cars. 5. Harry Potter Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (2007) was filmed in part at Freshwater West in Pembrokeshire (Image: Athena Picture Agency) The amazing shell cottage from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts One & Two was specially built at the foot of the sand dunes at Freshwater West beach and, well, we all know what happened there and we're too sad to talk about Dobby, so we'll just leave it at that.
The Welsh locations that have featured in Hollywood filmsWe all know Wales is a beautiful country and so, it seems, does Hollywood. A-list flicks such as Captain America, Wonder Woman, Harry Potter and '80s classics like Highlander and Willow were all made here in Wales thanks to the scenery and locations.
19. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life Angelina Jolie is Lara Croft Another fan of Snowdonia National Park was the Angelina Jolie-starring Lara Croft. The producers chose Snowdonia as a location after they were denied permission to shoot the $100m move in China, where the story is set. A mock Chinese village was created at Llyn Gwynant, near Beddgelert, and Chinese extras were hired to play farm labourers. Where: Snowdonia National Park, Nant Gwynant, Caernarfon, LL55 4NW. 20. The Killer Elite Jason Statham filming the Killer Elite in Cardiff (Image: Media Wales) Hollywood hardman Jason Statham and Robert De Niro were in Cardiff during the summer of July 2010 to film the 1980s-set film, which is based on explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ novel The Feather Men.
30. First Knight The 1995 Camelot film starred Richard Gere and Sean Connery as Lancelot and King Arthur. A bit of a critical flop the film was, like Guy Ritchie's attempt at the story 20 years later, filmed in the north of Wales. Filming took place at Llanfair slate mines in Harlech, Trawsfynydd, and Gloddfa Ganol in Blaenau Ffestiniog. Where: You can visit the slate caverns here. 31. Arabesque Italian film star Sophia Loren walks along the catwalk on the Crumlin Viaduct in August 1965 The Crumlin Viaduct (demolished in 1967) was the scene of an exciting helicopter chase in the film, which starred screen icon Sophia Loren alongside Gregory Peck. Perhaps the first time a helicopter had ventured up that valley for such a glamorous cause, Loren was a hit when she visited the location back when the film was made in the mid-60s. Where: Some of the bridge can still be seen from the A467 as you head towards Crumlin, which is now situated in the Caerphilly borough – or the Ebbw Valley, if you'd like.
29. Willow This '80s fantasy classic was also filmed, like Tarzan, at Dinorwig Quarry, which was unused at the time. It starred Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis and was directed by Ron Howard. Willow was created by George Lucas and has become a cult fantasy classic. Now it's being rebooted with Warwick Davis back in the titular role by Disney+ and that's being shot down south at Dragon Studios. Where: As above it's in the Llanberis area of Snowdonia National Park, LL55 4TY.

While the locations are still a huge attraction, nowadays, the Welsh TV and film industry has come on leaps and bounds, making shows for global audiences from studios across the country.

Not a Hollywood film, technically, but the Pythons are popular the world over. Kidwelly Castle Where: Kidwelly Castle is on Castle Road, SA17 5BQ. It can be reached by road, rail, and bus. It is open year-round but times vary. Click here for more details. 27. Half Light Demi Moore, recently filming A Brave New World in Rhondda Cynon Taf with Amblin Television, spent some time on Ynys Llanddwyn making the creepy Half Light back in 2006. Llanddwyn doubles for Scotland, mind, as Moore's crime novelist escapes to the coast to get over the death of her son. Where: Wander around the lovely beach (the nearest postcode for which is LL61 6SG) but check the local tide times. 28.
The quarry was also used in the Martin Freeman movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Where: Trefil Quarry is currently in operation as a quarry. 24. Die Another Day Penbryn beach is another stunning location in which Wales shows its natural beauty. Despite this, Penbryn doubles for North Korea! Where: Find the nearest car park at SA44 6QL. 25. American Werewolf in London The building featured in American Werewolf in London as The Slaughtered Lamb The groundbreaking werewolf horror, directed by John Landis, really showed off lots of the UK – though maybe not in the most tourist-enticing way. The famous pub, The Slaughtered Lamb, where Griffin Dunne and David Naughton meet a lot of unfriendly locals – who, to be fair, they should have listened to – is actually a Welsh pub in the village of Crickadarn.
It's no surprise as the location has stunning views from the top, interesting old buildings, machinery, and rail tracks to explore. There is a car park and the National Slate Museum is nearby too. Dinorwig (Image: Geoff Moore) Also filmed at the quarry was Clash of the Titans and Tomb Raider. Where: Find the former quarry in the Llanberis area of Snowdonia National Park, LL55 4TY.

You might want to wear a top, though, and a waterproof jacket.

The Eternal Daughter This is a Martin Scorsese project, filmed in secret in Wales at the back end of 2020. With Scorsese producing, the movie has high calibre from the start, with Tilda Swinton reteaming with director Joanna Hogg on the ghostly picture. It will chart the story of a middle-aged daughter and her elderly mother who must confront long-buried secrets when they return to their former family home, a once-grand manor that has become a nearly vacant hotel brimming with mystery. Where: Adding to the mystery surrounding the project, we don't know yet, but as soon as we do we'll add it here.
Scenes were shot at both Caerphilly Castle and Tretower Court in Crickhowell. Where: Castle Street, Caerphilly, CF83 1JD, and Tretower, Crickhowell, NP8 1RD. 23. Wrath of the Titans The quarry near Trefil The sequel to the Clash of the Titans (featured above) was partially shot at the Trefil quarry in Blaenau Gwent. The quarry was transformed into a barren rocky landscape and derelict temple for the filming.
The lucky devil also flexed his acting muscles in, er, exotic Bridgend, at the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes, the second highest in Europe. It's a lovely destination for a day out and you're only a short walk away from the ruins of the Norman Ogmore Castle and its 52 stepping-stones across the Ogmore river. Where: Head towards Bridgend on the M4 and exit at junction 35 and then follow the A48 towards Bridgend and follow the signs to the village of Merthyr Mawr.
