Which is why so many film crews regularly descend on the county to make great movies and TV shows, like these:
Blackpool and Preston were both used for locations in Max & Paddy's Road to Nowhere, released in 2004
We've lost count of how many times Coronation Street has filmed in Blackpool, but here's Roy Cropper, played by David Neilson and Patti Clare who plays Mary Taylor filming in a car on the promenade in 2018
A location for many films and dramas, but Queen Street Mill in Burnley is probably most famous for it's use in The King Speech, for which Colin Firth won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2011
We all enjoyed Paddy McGuinness' speeding ice cream van this year in Top Gear, but do you remember Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc filming time trials along the Lower Walk in Blackpool?
