Jack the Giant Slayer films in Norwich Cathedral

Tourism in Norfolk is hoping for a boost as Norwich Cathedral features as a location in the animated and live action blockbuster Jack the Giant Slayer.

The 12th-Century landmark was transformed into a fairytale castle for the Hollywood remake of the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale.

Starring Nicholas Hoult and Ewan McGregor, filming took place in the cathedral in 2011. The film is set for UK release on Friday.
