As these pictures show, an array of plants and greenery has been brought into the historic venue in preparation for filming to begin.

Meanwhile, crews were today arriving in the city in lorries ahead of fiming.

Tulip Fever is based on the novel by Deborah Moggach who also penned The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

The 17th-century romance tells the story of an artist who falls for a married young woman while he’s commissioned to paint her portrait.

Dame Judi Dench is among the Tulip Fever cast listed on film website IMDb alongside Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained and Water for Elephants), Holliday Grainger (Jane Eyre, The Borgias, and Anna Karenina), Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover and Due Date), and British model Cara Delevingne. Justin Chadwick, listed as the film’s director, previously directed The Other Boleyn Girl and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

The film company is expected to be at Norwich Cathedral until June 25. Access to parts of the cathedral may be restricted during the filming but the cathedral will remain open and services will take place as normal.
