Actors dressed in period costumes have been spotted in Oxford, as film crews descend on the city.

The actors were spotted at The King’s Centre in Osney Mead dressed in period suits and dresses.

At least three large trailers were seen outside The King’s Centre, with eight actors and several members of production crew also photographed.

People in the area initally thought hit Netflix show Bridgerton was filming, however the elaborate costumes appear to be from the 1600 or 1700s rather than the Regency era when the show is set. 

What the production is remains unconfirmed at this time. 

A member of staff at Spring Greens Café, a small café across from the building, told this newspaper they believed the space was being used as a large changing area for the actors, rather than a filming location.

They speculated filming was actually taking place in the city centre.

This was confirmed by a member of staff at The King’s Centre who said filming was actually taking place at the Bodleian Library.
