Unique Film Locations in London

London is one of the most photogenically gifted cities in the world. With Its epic skylines, iconic landmarks, and streets steeped in history, It is no wonder that the capital takes centre stage as the home of the UK’s film industry.

During this (seemingly) never-ending lockdown, many city dwellers are taking the opportunity to hit the streets and explore some of London’s lesser-known nooks and crannies. Kicking up hidden treasures and secret spaces that are usually overlooked by the hordes of crowds that in normal times, visit our fair City.

Beauty in the mundane

From abandoned playgrounds, graffitied backyards, deserted basements, and derelict buildings, We have some seriously stunning locations in and around the London area.

Stately homes undoubtedly have an important role to play in film, but little backstreet gems offer have the power to conjure up such emotive imagery. London’s contrasting landscape of bold contemporary architecture, nestled in between ancient historical sites, offer an endless library of cinematic possibilities.
