The portico of Henry Wood Hall in Trinity Church Square was turned into the entrance of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Saturday.
Film crews took over part of Trinity Church Square on Saturday to shoot a scene featuring horse-drawn carriages, with the former Holy Trinity Church (now Henry Wood Hall) doubling as the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
The eight-part period drama, devised by Tom Hardy and his father Chips Hardy, is due to be shown on BBC One.
The series will star Hardy as a rogue adventurer who sets out to build a shipping empire, pitting him against the East India Company.
