Where is Britannia filmed?

Britannia is a new historical drama, produced by Sky Atlantic and Amazon, that could be the new Vikings. The story of the 10-episode series is set in the year 43 AD, when the Roman army returned to British lands to crush the centre of the Celtic Kingdom of Britannia. The wild territory was then dominated by warrior women and mystical druids, who allegedly had the power to invoke the forces of the underworld.

Heading up the cast will be Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, True Detective) on the role of Celtic princess Kerra, David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) as roman general Aulus, an unrecognisable Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean) as Druid leader Veran, Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter) as Queen Antedia, and Stanley Weber (Outlander) as Lindon among others.

Britannia was filmed on location in Czech Republic and Wales. 10 large sets were built and more than 20 locations are featuring in the series, that won't be premiering until early 2018. However, we have already found many of the filming locations for this long-awaited series:
