Tourism businesses in the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley are hoping to welcome more visitors looking to search out some of the main locations used in the filming of the Netflix drama ‘Sex Education’ this year.

Chris Rollinson, proprietor of the Saracens Head, the gastro pub located at Symonds Yat, a stone’s throw from The Chalet, commented,“We can’t wait for a new wave of interest from this next series. We’ve been totally blown away by the number of people coming to the Saracens Head and explaining they are here because of Sex Education. They usually want to know if we have had the main stars of the show into the pub and how they can get the best selfie with the chalet in the background!”

Following Season Two’s release on Friday, January 17th, the destination continues to play a starring role throughout the series with the picturesque River Wye also featuring in the main publicity mural used to announce the TV show’s return and subsequently in all promotional posters going up in locations up and down the country as well as in the USA and beyond.
