British Museum

News Story

As the most-visited tourist attraction in the country, The British Museum is an incredible and versatile location for filming opportunities.

Situated in the heart of Bloomsbury, its iconic spaces such as The Great Court and the Parthenon Galleries have been featured in numerous films, such as Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Wonder Woman, Justice League and Ammonite. TV productions include period drama Howard’s End as well as series with a more contemporary setting such as popular Netflix productions The Crown and The Feed and BBC favourites McMafia, Gold Digger and Detectorists.

Apart from the more recognisable spaces and galleries, the museum also provides various back of house areas that offer an ideal variety of location backdrops, including study rooms, vintage library spaces, contemporary and Victorian period retail and office areas, basement corridors and grand staircases as well as modern conservation areas.
