Going Underground

Secret hidden filming locations that hide beneath the surface. Here at Locality Online we would like to share with you the locations that are undercover in Britain!

We all know what it’s like to be rushing to work in a swarm of people during our everyday routine. It is hard in that frame of mind to stop and imagine that underneath the thousands of footprints and the busy roads, lie beautiful hidden locations, steeped in history.  

These underground filming locations are breath taking and awe inspiring and make a director’s dream when it comes to production. Actors can easily immerse themselves in their role with the musty damp smells and the cold chill in the air. For authenticity it’s far better filming in the real thing than a studio set replica.

Filming underground does not come without issues. Access for the cast and crew and health and safety need to be considered. Normally these locations have only one entrance and negotiating cast and crew (on average of 50 people) and heavy equipment can be tricky. Luckily, Locality Online have already thought of all these issues and have guidance and specific details in our contracts relating to each underground filming location to make sure your shoot goes as smoothly as possible.

Going underground is not just for filming, these secret locations can also make unique event spaces and fabulous backdrops for a photoshoot.
