I love my little town and often blog about it, but in case you don't know I am from the beautiful, historical town, based on the east coast of very border of England and Scotland - Berwick Upon Tweed. We have a rich history and many attractions that draw tourists in such as our 'walls', bridges and ruins. However, in my whole life I have never known a sight like this...
...especially 2 minutes from my front door.
From around the 29th of September to the 10th of October we were transported back to the 14th century when actors, horses and crew alike began work shooting for the upcoming Netflix movie, Outlaw King starring Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce. And yes, Chris Pine was here. As was Stephen Dillane - aka Stannis Baratheon - playing the role of Edward I, and of course many others.
Photos weren't meant to be allowed and I didn't want to be that person, however it's just typical that loads of people got super good photos without getting told off. It was still super cool to see in person, as I passed it all multiple times a day on my way to work and it drew a lot of crowds from locals watching all of the goings on. A huge thing for our little town and I can't wait to try and spot our little old bridge in the final movie.
Has anything like this happened where you live? We also had a few tiny bits filmed here for The Railway Man a few years ago but no where near this scale.
