You can now visit all the filming locations for series 2 of Netflix's The Witcher as the full list is unveiled.

Fans of the show can now embark on a road trip through the UK, matching the exact journey made by TV crews and star-studded cast.

Series 1 of The Witcher saw Netflix crews film across Hungary, Poland, Spain and more.

But when Covid-19 spread throughout the world, The Witcher's production team set out a plot to film the entire season in the UK, spanning across 15 different locations.

All UK filming locations for The Witcher series 2

Creating Kaer Morhen

Production for series 2 of The Witcher was based at Arborfield Film Studios, a former army barracks transformed into several village sets and the exterior of Kaer Morhen.

“Kaer Morhen is a setting, but it’s really like a character in Season 2,” production designer Andrew Laws said.

“We were also aware that it’s an environment familiar to those who have read the books and played the video games, so we needed to honour that source material but also elevate it to a new level to keep it exciting for the audience."

The exterior of Kaer Morhen was a challenge for crews due to the deadly Witcher obstacle course the production team had to build, Netflix said.

“It was a very long evolution to get to the obstacle course. We had to really explore the idea of what a Witcher version of an obstacle course would look like whilst avoiding the pitfalls and tropes of it becoming a TV game show obstacle course that can become very predictable.” Laws said.

Coldharbour Wood in Chichester

The art department built a full elven village hidden amongst the trees in Coldharbour Wood in Chichester.

Bourne Wood in Farnham

Bourne Wood has often been used in TV and film - you might recognise the scenic location from films like Gladiator, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 

MOD Deepcut Surrey

MOD Deepcut Surrey, a major training base for the British Army, was used for five days in total. 

MOD Deepcut Surrey was used as part of the exterior to Kaer Morhen - including the Killer Trail, a rocky path around the Witchers’ home.

Lake District in Cumbria

For exterior location work, teams used the natural, rugged landscapes of the Lake District in Cumbria.

The Witcher was filmed at Blea Tarn, one of the caves of Hodge Close Quarry and Rydal Cave - a man-made cavern and former working quarry which supplied roofing slate to the surrounding villages over 200 years ago.

County Durham

Production crews visited Low Force Waterfall in Teesdale, County Durham -capturing scenes around the 18-foot-high set of falls on the River Tees.

It is situated within the North Pennines’ Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the European Geopark.

You can also cross the Wynch Bridge, built in 1830, where it is advised only one person crosses it at a time due to its stability.


The cast and crew spent three days filming at Gordale Scar in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This hidden gorge has two waterfalls and dramatic limestone cliffs which are over 100 meters high. Torrents of glacial meltwater and successive Ice Ages have carved the rock over thousands of years to create the impressive, mossy gorge seen today.

Plumpton Rocks was a last-minute find by the location department. It is a Grade 2 listed man-made lake surrounded by gardens and towering rocks, eroded over hundreds of years by wind and rain.

The final week on location in Yorkshire was spent filming at Fountains Abbey, one of the largest and best-preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. Founded in 1132, the Abbey operated for over 400 years, becoming one of the wealthiest monasteries in England until its dissolution in 1539 under the order of King Henry VIII.


The Witcher was also filmed at Frensham Ponds, Frensham Great Pond and Frensham Little Pond in Surrey.

Frensham Great Pond and Frensham Little Pond were built during the Middle Ages to provide fish for the Bishop of Winchester’s estate, Netflix said.

This same location was used for the 1959 film The Hounds of Baskerville, Carry On Jack, and The Mummy.
