Film Friendly Location

Located near to London but with a 350-mile-long coastline and expansive countryside, Essex is the ideal film-friendly location. 

The Essex Film Office is currently working on an interactive database which will be fully searchable and which will include street locations, public buildings and private properties.  

In the meantime, why not check out some of the amazing locations we have in Essex in our location’s gallery? 

If you are looking for a specific location, you can contact the Essex Film Office directly – we are here to help.
