Welcome to Southbank Centre Filming and Photography
Located a stone’s throw from the London Eye and Westminster, Southbank Centre offers a fantastic location for both filming and stills photography. From the South Bank of the Thames, crews can capture stunning shots of some of London’s most iconic architecture. A huge variety of spaces and backdrops falls within our jurisdiction, from Brutalist concrete to 1950s design and river views.
We manage the Queen’s Walk, which runs alongside the River Thames, from the London Eye to the National Theatre, and the structures comprising Southbank Centre. This includes Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Hayward Gallery and surrounding walkways. Please contact us about shoots both inside our buildings, and in the external areas.
We are always delighted to accommodate shoots where possible and endeavour to turn these around as quickly as possible; however, if applicants can allow at least 5 working days’ lead time, this will offer the best possible chance of approval.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PARKING IS EXTREMELY LIMITED ONSITE - PLEASE CALL THE EVENTS TEAM ON 020 7921 0702 TO DISCUSS ANY REQUIREMENTS
Hourly location fees are payable for all commercial filming and photography on site and vary according to crew size - a full breakdown is downloadable from this page. This will need to be paid in full before the shoot date.
Before filming or photoshoots can be confirmed, clients must supply the following information:
- Copy of public liability insurance; generally this should be to £10m, but for small shoots £5m may be acceptable;
- A full, site-specific risk assessment for the shoot, including a brief method statement.
For any queries pertaining to your shoot, please call the team on 020 7921 0702.
