England, Wales, and Scotland’s stunning scenery, experienced crew, world class studios and attractive tax breaks make it one of the best places in the world to film.
Approximately three-quarters of the UK’s film industry is based in and around London, meaning that it contributed roughly £1.2bn to the capital’s economy in 2016.
London is the third busiest city for film production in the world after only Los Angeles and New York. The capital’s world-class crews, locations, talent and competitive tax reliefs have sustained London’s position in the top three cities – and that also means demand for studio space is incredibly high.
