The fantasy drama series ‘A Discovery of Witches’ has recently returned for a third series, with many people throughout west Wales noticing a few familiar spots.

The Sky series has been filmed across this region since its first series dating back to 2018, with filming taking place across various locations in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.

Eagle-eyed viewers will have noticed in the latest series that one of the backdrops in the show is none other than Aberglasney Gardens in Carmarthenshire.

The Grade II-listed mansion on site is no stranger to being on screen, having appeared in ‘A Garden Lost in Time’ which followed the garden’s restoration on the BBC.

Gareth Skelding, location manager for season one and two of A Discovery of Witches, said: “The medieval Aberglasney House and Gardens in Carmarthenshire boasts one of the finest gardens in Wales, part of which served as the gardens for Sept-Tours, the fictional family home of the de Clermont family.

“It’s a really versatile location for a set which I have also used to shoot scenes for Da Vinci’s Demons. Sept-Tours features in seasons two and three as well as season one and it was great to come back.

“Gardens, little temples and cloisters from Aberglasney all make an appearance. It’s a sweet little place, the people are amazing.”

Aberglasney Gardens’ head gardener, Joseph Atkin added: “We were delighted to have been chosen as a location for the series.

“The filming has taken place at Aberglasney over the last few years and those familiar with the Gardens will certainly recognise the piggeries lawn, the Pool Garden and the lower Cloister area when watching the drama unfold.”

The show, produced by Bad Wolf, is based on the bestselling novels by Deborah Harkness, and stars Teresa Palmer and Matthew Goode.

All episodes of the third series, along with the first and second, are available to watch on Sky Demand, with episodes airing weekly on Sky Max.
