Where is The White Princess filmed?

The White Princess is a sequel to The White Queen, the 2013 TV show from BBC, based in the historical novel by Philippa Gregory. The result is a 15th century period drama about the struggle for power, romance, betrayal and epic filming locations.

This time the American company Starz is producing the eight episode series helmed by Emma Frost (also writer of The White Queen or The Man in the High Castle). The cast includes Jodie Comer as Princess Elizabeth of York, Jacob Collins-Levy as Henry VII and Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark from Game of Thrones).

The White Princess was filmed in many cathedrals, castles and historic buildings of England and Wales. The central location was Bristol, and at first the producers tried to find all the locations within an hour’s radius. Also some scenes may have been filmed in Spain. We will be updating and improving this report, as more details about the show are revealed. Contains no spoilers!
