A POPULAR Netflix, filmed in South Cumbria, is now airing to a global audience.

Fans watching series two of The Witcher will be able to catch glimpses of locations including Blea Tarn, Rydal Cave and Hodge Close Quarry.

The cast and crew, including Hollywood actor Henry Cavill, spent around one month in the country filming for the hit show.

While staying Cumbria for the shooting, Cavill posted on his Instagram said: "Witcher training focuses on three major aspects....speed, explosive power, and fitness.

"Which can hurt. I haven't had the opportunity to run for miles up hill since Gibralter many years ago. But there is no better place to get back into that groove than the Lake District here at home in the UK. This place has just stormed into my top 3 favourite places in the world. Absolutely love it."

In an interview with the Westmorland Gazette in 2020 Gill Haigh, managing director at Cumbria Tourism, said: "Cumbria and the Lake District have long been the perfect place to be for film and TV productions, from the cult classic Withnail and I to current dramas such as BBC’s The A Word and ITV’s Deep Water, not forgetting Star Wars, and it’s fantastic to see big name productions from Netflix such as The Witcher choosing Cumbria as a location."

All eight episodes of series two of The Witcher is out on Netflix now.
