London is one of the world’s most popular production centres. A thriving metropolis with a host of studios and crew, as well as locations ranging from recognisable landmarks through to hidden gems, the city is film friendly and ready for production.
Productions can make the most of the capital with us: Film London offers free professional advice through dedicated bespoke services as well as an extensive database of experienced crew, facilities and over 6,000 locations.
We service all production including film, television, commercials and video games. We work closely with London's 33 local authorities and have developed good working relations with the country's major studios including Pinewood, Shepperton, Ealing, 3 Mills, Wimbledon, Elstree and Leavesden.
London Filming Partnership
Further to offering on-the-ground support to productions, Film London manages the London Filming Partnership, which has a membership of over 280 organisations including the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, key locations and all 33 London boroughs — all of who are committed to welcoming filming.
The Partnership is responsible for introducing initiatives such as the Film London Code of Practice and crucial legislation allowing productions to close roads for filming which enable producers to capitalise on everything the city has to offer.
