Avengers: Infinity War filmed in Edinburgh

Avengers Infinity War filmed in Edinburgh

Much excitement is circulating throughout our wonderful city as large film crews have taken over parts of the Royal Mile and the Waverley train station.

Rumour has it that the first and second unit scenes are being filmed with a budget of £10m. That might sound like a lot of money, but considering the success of the previous films, we are sure that the expense will be well compensated.

The film is being directed by Joe Russo and his brother Anthony who also directed Captain America: Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Both films received rave reviews and great success at the box office.


The presence of Hollywood in Edinburgh has everyone talking. Joe Russo recently comment: “The city is such a unique and iconic location, but one never seen as the backdrop for a big action film, which is incredibly exciting.”


Successful production

Planning is the key to a successful production. The shoot in Edinburgh has taken a full year to put together. This is no small task and required the dedicated assistance by regional agencies including Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.

Avengers: Infinity War has a star-studded cast including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. Unfortunately, the film is only due to hit the big screen in April 2018 which means we will have to wait a little longer to enjoy it.

B+B Edinburgh is perfectly situated with easy access routes to the Royal Mile and the Waverley train station. It’s clear that even Hollywood shares our love for this beautiful city. If you are a fan of the Avengers films and would like to visit Edinburgh to see the film crew in action, we hope that you will stay with us. Tel: +44 (0) 131 225 5084 / Email: [email protected]
