May the force be with you in Puzzlewood

Coleford, Gloucestershire

See where scenes of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens were filmed as you explore the enchanting woodlands of Puzzlewood.

Puzzlewood's forests and ancient ruins have inspired some of the best fantasy and sci-fi productions of the last decade, and recently was one of the filming locations for J.J.Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

In the latest instalment of the space saga, our heroes travel to a forest world in their space odyssey and meet the latest villain in black, Kylo Ren amidst the rocks and trees.

Puzzlewood’s mystical backdrop has been a frequent filming location for TV’s Doctor Who, Merlin and Atlantis as well as for Hollywood blockbusters including Jack the Giant Killer and Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, Part 1.

It is also rumoured that its ancient woods were the inspiration for the forests of Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings, so you can imagine yourself strolling through the elven realms of Mirkwood and Lothlórien as you walk pass the twisted roots of the Yew trees.
