Filming locations

Northamptonshire is home to many unique locations, from the highest concentration of stately homes in England to sweeping countryside and gritty urban backdrops.

We work closely with Creative England’s Filming in England Team to facilitate productions and strive to help production companies wherever we can. 

Creative England have launched online databases to showcase the assets, crew and suppliers we have on offer:

We’re always keen to discuss the viability of location filming for film and TV, documentaries, commercials, and all other types of production. See filming location guidance for information on how to apply for permission to film in Northamptonshire.
