Roman Polanski’s brings striking visuals to an adaptation of Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy, funded by Hugh Hefner and his Playboy empire.

‘Dunsinane’ is Bamburgh Castle , a hugely imposing fortification sitting on a volcanic outcrop on the coast of Northumberland, about 40 miles north of Newcastle-on-Tyne.

Bamburgh is also used for the long shots of ‘Loudon’ in Ken Russell’s The Devils.

‘Inverness’ is Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island, which previously provided the main setting for Polanski’s Cul De Sac.

The opening execution of the Thanes is staged on Black Rock Sands, at Morfa Bychan, on the Lleyn Peninsula near Porthmadog in North Wales.
