Where is Broadchurch Filmed?

Broadchurch, aka West Bay in Dorset

Hit ITV series Broadchurch is now back on our screens and West Bay in Dorset once again finds itself in the spotlight. On-screen drama is a given, but the dramatic cliffs, seascape and beautiful surroundings provide a wonderful drama of their own.

An all-star cast including David Tennant and Olivia Colman return in series 3, and a dark new case needs solving.

Broadchurch Series 3, Dorset

The iconic cliffs at West Bay are bound to feature heavily in Broadchurch, but the show's creators are spoilt for choice in terms of scenery - Dorset has so much to offer and Broadchurch takes full advantage. Filming locations have included WeymouthBridport, Eypes Mouth, and Charmouth. Axehampton House from the new series is filmed at Bridehead House in the Dorset village of Little Bredy.
