Filming and Photography

    With over 6,000 acres of beautiful and diverse landscapes across the city, there are ample locations for filming or photography in The Parks Trust’s parkland and we welcome requests from organisations and groups to use it for this purpose.

    No photography or filming shoots are permitted without the prior agreement of The Parks Trust. With the exception of schools, charitable organisations and news bulletins, a fee is also applicable.

    If you would like to use any of The Parks Trust’s green space for a photography or filming project please contact the Marketing and Communications Team on 01908 233600 or info@theparkstrust.com

    Whilst we can be flexible we do require at least one weeks’ notice to process a filming or photography application.

    The Parks Trust reserves the right to reject any requests that are unsuitable. It may not be possible to facilitate shoots during peak season or when particular events are taking place.
