Photo and Film Location Venue

CENTRAL LONDON LOCATION

Our film location venue is located within leafy Dean’s Yard and offers a peaceful setting along with stunning views of Westminster Abbey. Its central location is enhanced by excellent transportation links and is within minutes of St. James’s Park and Westminster tube stations, and a short walking distance from Waterloo and Victoria mainline stations.

HISTORY

The prestigious and iconic Grade II listed building with its extensive heritage was designed in 1940 by world-renowned architect, Sir Herbert Baker, and houses the Church of England’s administrative and decision-making centre. The film location venue offers a historic setting, which was originally founded in 1887 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It has played a major part in the two Houses of Parliament in WW2 and held the first meetings of the UN Preparatory Commission and Security Council.

EXTERIOR

The general style of the building exudes a delightful sense of unity with the buildings of the Precincts which they had in the medieval days, echoing the familiar face of the old Dean’s Yard. Flint-work was chosen not only for a strong looking and rich base to the high superstructure but also for its durability and cleanliness. The terrace features old stones from the older Abbey building, giving strength and dignity to the façade. Stunning sash windows above the flint-faced lower story, interspersed with stone-mullioned windows are set within the flint-work where the masons have shown their greatest skill.

INTERIOR

Once inside, the film location venue offers stylish backdrops which include both intimate rooms as well as large airy spaces. Polished English oak paneling, Art Deco chandeliers, and classically inspired architectural details can be seen throughout the building. Curved corridors and modern staircases accommodate both live-action shoots and still photography. The extensive and versatile film location venue provides 19 event spaces of 2,000 square metres that can easily accommodate wardrobe changes and catering areas. 

ROOFTOP

Stunning 360-degree rooftop views across central London from the 7th floor of the film location venue is ideal for news reporting, shooting pieces to camera for interviews and documentaries or photography shoots with iconic London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye as a backdrop.
