St Michael's Mount in Cornwall.


House of the Dragon will have its main production headquarters at Warner Bros Leavesden Studios in Watford, England. This is presumably where all their interior sets will be constructed and filmed.[1]



Filming began in Cornwall, England in late April 2021, at the island castle of St Michael's Mount. This is believed to be depicting Driftmark, the ancestral seat of House Velaryon. Filming ended in early May after about two weeks.[2]

Filming returned to Cornwall in Holywell Bay mid-September 2021[3] to shoot scenes believed to be taking place on the Stepstones. It also expanded to film at Kynance Cove, a beach with rock formations which is farther east along the southern coast from St. Michael's Mount.


After the Cornwall shoot ended in mid-May 2021, exterior filming resumed the first week of September in Derbyshire, in northern England. Spy reports revealed that filming was taking place in the Peak District, the southern end of the Pennine mountain chain, located roughly between Manchester and Sheffield. Matt Smith was spotted in costume, then a large spy report in the DailyMail showed photos of Graham McTavish, Emily Carey, and Milly Alcock in full costume.[4]
