Major feature film will be shooting scenes in the Castle Museum next week

Kirkgate in the York Castle Museum

One of the glories of York is to star on the big screen.

Kirkgate in Castle Museum is to be the backdrop to scenes in a new film.

It means the recreated Victorian street will be closed next Wednesday (22 January). As a result you can get half price admission to the museum on the day – the other galleries will stay open.


There’s no word yet as to what the movie is.

Scenes for Christmas romcom Let There Be Love have been shot in both Shambles and underneath Lendal Bridge in recent weeks.
