We are currently receiving an unprecedented number of applications, many under our published timescales. Please ensure you have enough time before applying, as we are currently not able to accept late applications. Timescales begin from when you pay for the application, not from the date of application.

Our published timescales are:

  • filming requiring parking suspensions or for crews larger than 7 people, 10 working days’ notice
  • filming requiring use of residential areas, night shoots, removal of street furniture, crane, platform, or temporary structures, 1 months’ notice
  • filming requiring a road closure, 3 months’ notice

From West End landmarks and riverside views to the residential locations of Maida Vale, Mayfair and Pimlico, our streets, squares and parks provide the perfect backdrop for filming and photography.

The city has starred in countless blockbusters, dramas and independent productions including Skyfall, The Crown and Fast and Furious.

We welcome filming applications and our team is on hand to help you plan a safe and successful shoot.

Please make sure you have read our COVID-19 events and filming guidance carefully, before you apply.
