Hart District Council actively encourages TV, film, photography and production companies to use land and buildings as filming locations. Hart offers varied settings for filming, from the plush woodland of Hawley Common to the industrial setting of the former Pyestock test site.
With easy motorway access from the M3, Hart is an ideal location for London-based production companies. Hart has been the backdrop for many TV shows from Don’t Tell the Bride and The Grand Tour, to major blockbusters like Jurassic World 2, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Stardust to name a few.
To request permission to film in locations owned or managed by Hart District Council, contact the Economic Development team via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or complete our online form. Hart District Council can advise on possible suitable locations, liaise with other Council departments on your behalf and pass on contacts of some private locations to assist in the smooth organisation of your shoot.
