Weird, wonderful and unusual locations for filming, photoshoots and events.

We have a massive collection of unusual filming & event locations in London and United Kingdom. We have lots of fantastic Npower and Thames Water sites so if its a power station, pump house or sewage treatment plant you are after then you have come to the right place. We have lots of industrial kitchens, warehouses, reservoirs and wonderful industrial backdrops, scrapyards & wasteland locations. If you would like to film a music video in a nuclear underground bunker or a film at sea we even have ships! Petrol stations & supermarkets are often hard to film in but we have a great collection of accessible locations which are available to hire for filming. Also not forgetting our collection of controllable roads!

Looking for something a little different to use as a photographic studio in London? We have put together our favourite locations with quirky furniture, textured walls, modern and architecturally interesting apartments, lofts and spaces which are unusually beautiful in their own right and perfect for a photoshoot.
