Clarkson, born in Doncaster, has already filmed in the North Yorkshire fishing town, when he tested the BMW i8 for Top Gear back in 2015 and claimed that it was home to the best fish and chips…in the world.
The Grand Tour will be aired on the 18th November this year, available on the online streaming service Amazon Prime after they signed a bumper deal with them back in July 2015 after the threesome left their job presenting Top Gear, after Jeremy’s infamous fracas with a producer.
The show has a budget of £160 million spreading over 36 episodes, that’s £4.5 million a show, which is four times the budget of Top Gear.
New ITV drama ‘Victoria’ has recently been filmed in Whitby, with television and film bringing an estimated £20 million to the Yorkshire economy.
Whitby has been the host of many scenes in books and television, with long running British police drama Heartbeat using the town as a prominent filming location. It was also the location for Brian Stoker’s Dracula claiming his first victim.
