About Surrey Film Office

Surrey Film Office has been created as an economic development initiative by Surrey County Council. Working in conjunction with Surrey’s District and Borough Councils and key organisations, our aim is to promote Surrey as a first class filming location. Equally, we want to ensure that Surrey residents and businesses continue to benefit from filming in the County and disruption is kept to a minimum throughout the filming process.

Surrey has played host to a number of major feature films and TV dramas including Beauty & the Beast, The Holiday, Wonder Woman, Gladiator, The Crown, Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife, to name but a few. You can take a look at what’s been filming, on our ‘Filmed in Surrey’ page.

Home to Shepperton Studios and Longcross Film Studios, Surrey is located within close reach of London, and Heathrow and Gatwick airports, as well as offering great links with the South East region.

Famously known for locations such as Hampton Court Palace and Top Gear’s Dunsfold Park, Surrey is also named the most wooded county in England, offering an abundance of woodland locations and landscape backdrops. You can see our range of locations on our Locations Database, which is free to register.

  • surrey-based locations
  • essential contacts around the county
  • permits to film on the public highway
