Where was Anne Boleyn filmed?

Anne Boleyn was filmed across several locations in Yorkshire, in the north of England, during the winter of 2020.

Various interior scenes were shot on location at the historic Bolton Castle, the 14th-century castle located in Wensleydale, Yorkshire.

Mark Stanley, who plays Henry VIII, told Radio Times Bolton Castle was his favourite shooting location.

He said: "Yeah, I loved Bolton Castle. It really offered itself."

"We were shooting in November and December, it was cold, but you soon got to grips with why so many people congregated in just one room and why there were massive curtains, drapes down every stone wall [to] stop it sapping all the warmth out."

He added that filming there helped the cast realise 'just how desolate they could feel actually, especially if you were left alone like Anne was'.

Mark said: "If you were left up in a tower or in a stone room… Comforts, you know, they’re not comforts like we know today."

"So actually, it was quite good. It was a bit of a feast for the imagination, all that sort of stuff.”

The show was shot on location with Mary Queen of Scots, Boleyn's cousin, being held prisoner at Bolton castle in the 1560s.

Scenes were shot in the Queen of Scots' bedchamber.

The show will premiere on Channel 5 at 9pm TONIGHT and air across three consecutive evenings.
