While Leavesden Studios is obviously the hub of Watford filming, a new industry website shows 12 other locations on crews’ radar.

Hertfordshire Film Office officially launched as a “gateway” for productions looking to film in the county this week and offers lists of places in each town that can be booked as sets.

Watford mayor Peter Taylor said: “Hertfordshire’s world-leading film and TV studios are driving an appetite to invest.

“This creates huge opportunities for young people to enter the screen industry and those with transferable skills in, for example, carpentry, hairdressing, or digital artistry to retrain.

“The Film Office is a great example of how local government is working hand-in-hand with industry to make a real and tangible impact.”

These are the locations being advertised in Watford:

Watford Market:

Boasting a “unique and innovative design”, the town centre location is also a sheltered environment removed from the hustle and bustle.

Watford market's shipping container layout could even lend a futuristic feel to a scene.

Cheslyn House and Gardens:
