- and below with Location Works we visit behind the scenes of interesting places for UK film making . . . and elsewhere . . . we take you behind the lens and mirror some of the UK's best locations and stunning places throughout Europe. Please scroll lower for the Categorised Library of UK film locations . . . and the European film locations links. Whilst many think of travelling to Latvia, Hungary and Czech Republic, some of our UK film locations can save you the substantial trouble of doing so. On the other hand, if you are doing extended sequences, we hope our links at the end of this file are useful . . . please scroll lower . . .

Sometimes film locations group together to provide a "location kit" and particularly useful is a group in Sussex Kent and Surrey around 25 minutes from the M25 near to London, Shepperton and Wood Lane film making facilities and these can form a one-stop film location kit saving on time, travelling and expenses.

Sussex Group of Film Locations

In this group coonveniently close to London is a very versatile film location house used by Prada for ultra modern interiors (the house provides spaciousness in which to work), documentaries on historical figures requiring Classical Georgian or Victorian period interiors, grand staircases and a derelict room. This is particularly multifunctional, serving as a historic hospital, decayed splendour living room, World War 2 office . . . . whilst much loved for fashion photography. Phone 01342 850594 or email

Nearby on the Ashdown Forest Locamotion (phone 01825 712966) supplies Army tanks and military vehicles in useful rolling countryside used for Band of Brothers, low budget accommodation is available, with a period steam railway nearby. The Sunburn Films Film Courses are held in the area for those wishing to convert from Silver Halide and Digital Beta techniques to HD High Definition media. Local Location Caterers are saying they want to be featured here but we have not got links yet . . .
