Frequently Asked Questions


Will I need a permit?
London is a friendly city, and in most cases, filming is permitted. You will need to get a permit, but it’s a relatively simple process and the London Borough Film Service will be able to give you the information you need.

It’s important to note that you can film highways, but it’s always best to check in with us and we’ll tell you which areas you’ll need filming permission. You will need to provide proof of your public liability insurance, and Buckingham Palace is off-limits – unless you get special permission.


What about equipment?
London is a busy city, and while the London Underground provides useful transport links, it can be difficult to carry your filming equipment around. We can provide useful solutions, and if you only want to take your camera, we’ll help you to source other equipment.

There are many private rental solutions, so you can rest assured that you’ll have the best equipment for your film.
