Heartbeat filming: Goathland

Heartbeat was set in the fictional town of Ashfordly and the village of Aidensfield. But although both these towns might be made up, they're set in the North Riding of Yorkshire, which is where a lot of the filming took place. The majority of the scenes, particularly external scenes, were filmed in Goathland, a village in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.

The show was mostly filmed in and around the Yorkshire countryside

Many landmarks from the show are recognisable to this day, including the stores, the public house and the railway station. The local pub, the Goathland Hotel, doubled up as the Aidensfield Arms in the ITV programme. After filming interior shots in the hotel for some years, a replica of it was built in Yorkshire TV's Leeds studio.

As well as Goathland, the cast and crew from ITV headed to other locations in and around the North England county to shoot scenes. Other towns included: Whitby, Otley and central Scarborough itself - giving the show its Northern countryside backdrop that it's known and loved for.

The show also headed Down Under for a couple of episodes

Heartbeat filming: Canada and Australia 

Not only did Heartbeat film on home soil, but it also headed overseas! The show went over to Canada to film a special version of the show called Heartbeat: Changing Places. The one-off special was filmed in the mountains to portray the new life of PC Nick Rowan (played by Nick Berry) and his family after he left to join the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In 2008, the show headed overseas once again when it filmed in the small Australian town of Rappville in New South Wales for its episodes 'Thursday's Children' and 'The Middle of Somewhere'.
