Film & Photography

Ushaw has a great variety of locations suitable for television, film and photography, and has most recently been featured in George Gently, Vera, Catherine Cookson drama, and Flog It amongst others, it is situated in the countryside 4 miles from Durham City. 

The Main House, Chapels and formal rooms are adorned with Victorian and Georgian Gothic architecture and period features, other parts of the building retain the classic old dormitories (used when it was a seminary college) and many other retro features can be seen throughout the corridors and areas not open to the public. Externally a selection of outbuildings, a graveyard and historic walling provide further opportunities - the wider Estate spans around 500 acres.
