Let Bucks County capture the unique spirit of your film or photo shoot. From beautiful, historic castles to small towns full of character, Bucks County has played center stage to award-winning films, television shows, documentaries, photo shoots and more.

  • Encompassing hundreds of acres of vineyards with beautiful views and fresh air scented with the bounty of grapes, the nine wineries along the Bucks County Wine Trail serve as a breathtaking backdrop to any vineyard-themed film or photo shoot.
  • Searching for a true American castle? The well-traveled town of Doylestown is home to Fonthill Castle, Mercer Museum and Moravian Pottery & Tiles Works. These castles tell the story of creative genius Henry Mercer by exhibiting his tiles, mosaics from around the world as well as furnishings and tools of early America. Set amongst multi-story concrete structures, six-story high galleries and ornately adorned walls, these castles create a unique and historic surrounding.
  • Perfect for a 17th-century setting, Pennsbury Manor, the re-created country manor house of William Penn, offers a glimpse of how the founder of Pennsylvania spent his days. This 43-acre plantation embraces country life with a manor house filled with period furnishings, outbuildings, livestock and lush gardens. 

Fun Fact: The movie Signs, directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Mel Gibson, was filmed and takes place in Bucks County.

The pharmacy scene was shot in Morrisville.
