Filming and celebrities

A perfect setting for the big and little screen

Scouting out a Gloucestershire film location? The Wharf House and restored Over Canal Basin could be the perfect setting.

The historic city of Gloucester is a world-famous filming location – the most notable example being numerous Harry Potter scenes filmed at Gloucester Cathedral – and The Wharf House and Over Canal Basin is regularly used by professional television companies.

The volunteer-built Wharf House is a beautiful and unique building both inside and out, while the adjacent restored Over Canal Basin makes for an impressive setting for all kinds of purposes.

Recent years have seen the likes of ITN, UK Boating, Move to the Country and Carlton Production’s Waterworld choose The Wharf House as a filming location.

While we are also pleased to have accommodated distinguished guests, from civic leaders and high profile business members, to celebrities such as Amanda Holden, Prunella Scales and Timothy West.
