Broadchurch location (Pier not seen in series), Clevedon

Clevedon Pier

A small community is about to be torn apart when a young boy is murdered. This exciting Brittish story was set in a small seaside town in the south of England. Most scenes were filmed in Clevedon (for season 1, 2 and 3).

The marine lake, with its stunning view over the Bristol Channel is the setting for the boat burning in series 1.

The Church used throughout the series is St. Andrews Church and cemetery. It is Clevedon’s oldest church (12th century).

The interior of Jack Marshall’s newsagent’s is not a set, but a real store. Alexandra News (on Alexandra Road) provided the property.

Hill Road is Broadchurch’s High Street. With Number 22, the Hotel (Trades), where David Tennant stays. In fact, this used to be a Llods bank (although people did try to book a room or table at the Hotel while te crew was filming in Clevedon). Interiors were filmed at Walton Park Hotel, a little further down the coast.

Other locations in the area uses are Poet’s Walk, Wain’s Hill, Clevedon Pill, Marshall’s Field and Bank.

The Clevedon Pier was not used for Broadchurch (possibly because it is so iconic and people might recognise it immediately). One Direction used it for one of their videos (You and I, 2014) and also Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield  were filmed here for “Never Let me Go” (2010).

Now you see me – New Orleans

New Hollywood, more commonly known as New Orleans, has been the movie location for big productions like “Jurassic World“, but also “Now you see me” has been filmed partialy here.

The cafe Du Monde is where Woody Harrelson does his mind reading trick.

A bit more style can be found at the Napoleon House, which can also be seen in “JFK”. Here the horsemen make an escape.

Want to buy something weird in a store seen in the movie? Try Reverend Zombie’s House of Voodoo.

A final bar that can be seen in the film, is the one near Roosevelt Hotel, the Sazerac bar. With a hotel closeby, this might be a nice place to end your tour, although it might be a bit expensive….
