As part of the preparations a drone was flown over the hotel by part of the film crew.

The film is about if The Beatles never existed and is written by Suffolk-based Richard Curtis and stars Lily James, Eastenders star Himesh Patel and a rumoured appearance by Ed Sheeran.

It has already seen scenes filmed inside Gorleston’s Ocean Room venue and in Lowestoft, Halesworth and the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
