A Quick Guide to Becoming A Star Filming Location!

We are always getting requests from production companies for locations, from residential houses and stately homes to empty warehouses and unused barns. We want to work with you to give filmmakers and photographers the best Worcestershire has to offer. We’re looking for all types, shapes and sizes, so don’t be put off by the size or condition of your property or land!


Filming locations play a crucial role in screen tourism for several reasons:

  • Authenticity and Recognition: Filming locations provide an authentic experience for fans. Recognizable places from on-screen productions enhance the sense of connection and make the tourism experience more meaningful.
  • Economic Impact: Screen tourism has a significant economic impact on local communities. Both film crew as well as subsequent visitors spend money on accommodation, dining, transportation, and souvenirs, contributing to the local economy, creating jobs and fostering growth.
  • Boost in Tourism Infrastructure: The demand generated by screen tourism can lead to improvements in local tourism infrastructure. This can include better transportation, increased accommodation options, and enhanced facilities, benefiting both visitors and the local community.
  • Promotion of Lesser-Known Destinations: Filming in lesser-known or underappreciated locations can bring attention to these areas, encouraging tourism development and helping to diversify travel destinations in the Worcestershire area!
  • Community Engagement: Screen tourism fosters community engagement by involving local businesses, residents, and authorities. Collaboration between the film industry and local communities can create a positive environment for tourism development.

Filming locations, in whichever shape or form, are essential to screen tourism as they create a bridge between screen and the real-world, not only supporting the local economy but also promoting community and appreciation for lesser known destinations.
