The first episode of ‘The White Queen’ airs June 16 on BBC one. I’m very excited to see how the result will look like, but after seeing all the preview trailers I’m pretty sure it will be excellent. A lot of people are already looking for the filming locations of ‘The White Queen’, so I made a first compilation with images from the trailers:
‘Coronation street’: Blinde Ezelstraat in Bruges, located between the Burg and Fishmarket (steetview)
Westminster Palace Court: the belfry located in the middle of Bruges
This kissing scene is shot at the Oud Waterhuis (Old Waterhouse) in the Hendrik Consciencelaan (steetview)
Grafton Manor (The house of Elizabeth Woodwille): Castle of Oostkerke in Damme (unfortunately private area)
And action! First day of filming Peekay (PK) on location in Brugge. Today’s set is located on the market place, at the entrance of the Provinciaal Hof. Here are some ‘behind the scenes’ pictures and videos:
Peekay (PK), the new film by Indian director Rajkuman Hirani (known for blockbuster ‘3 idiots’), will be partly shot on location in Bruges. The main actors are Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma. The films tells the story about an Indian student living in Bruges, who wants to marry her boyfriend, but all kind of obstacle appear. This isn’t just another romantic Bollywood film, the story goes deeper. Hirani likes to add a social message in his movies. Shooting in Bruges will start on 9 june. Filming locations are the market place, Howest Campus Sint-Jorisstraat, the beguinage and the canals of Bruges.
Teehan+Lax Labs has created an amazing tool to create interactive ‘hyperlapse’ videos using Google Street View images. Hyperlapse stands for a combination of timelapse video and a moving camera. I’ve experimented with this tool and made a custom version to create hyperlapse videos of Bruges.

Pictures and videos of this week’s set of ‘The White Queen’ in the woods of Ryckevelde in Bruges. This is probably going to be one of the final scenes of the serie, starring Aneurin Barnard as King Richard III in the battle of Bosworth:
This week the crew of The White Queen have pitched their tents in Bruges’ woods. They are currently filming some camping and action scenes in Ryckevelde, a forest between Bruges and Damme. This weekend I had the chance to walk around the set and make 2 videos:
