Location Collective are London’s leading agency providing space for film production use, with over a decade of experience in bringing together filming and property. Our aim is to provide an unrivalled level of service to our property owner clients, ensuring we keep the doors of London’s buildings open to filming for as long as possible.
We represent all types of property for film production use, from lived-in homes, to operational and institutional buildings, to vacant offices and industrial development sites.
Filming can serve many purposes for our owner clients. Some just love the idea of their property being immortalised on the big screen. For others the motivation is business driven, with filming used to drive community place-making, or as a meanwhile use to help alleviate business rates in a vacant property.
Our busy team work hard to give each building in our portfolio maximum industry exposure, whilst taking on all the organisation that comes with accommodating filming.
Our services are used by film industry professionals working in many different roles including Producers, Line Producers, Location Managers and Scouts. Our portfolio covers a wide range of spaces with production potential, from filming locations of all kinds, to alternative set build spaces, to production offices and other forms of production space for rent.
We also have a specialist Express service, for productions searching for shooting locations with a faster turnaround.
We are proud to enjoy strong relationships across the film world, with many industry professionals choosing to become Location Collective members.
The team, organisation, communication and support are outstanding! We have and would recommend their services to other schools. Their approach is very selective and they understand perfectly all the restrictions and challenges that the education industry faces when they open their premises to commercial activities. It’s been a delight working with Location Collective over the past 2 years.
Marina Kassoyan, Commercial Manager, Highgate School
Location Collective are a highly dedicated and professional team who have extensive connections in the film industry. They bring a high calibre of filming enquiries for our assets and are a well-known and trusted presence on site due to the frequency of production recces they personally oversee on our behalf. Overall, a great service and a passionate team who are an important contributor to our commercialisation strategy.
Ross McCall, Commercialisation Director, Retail & Office, British Land
I have been hugely impressed by the Location Collective team. The London shoot went exceptionally smoothly. Our Account Manager was able to quickly develop a good relationship and successfully engage with a number of senior operational management at the stadium, which was not an easy task given the demands of operating a brand new stadium at that time. He was always polite but very clear on what was needed, was very thorough and also made sure that all parties were well informed at all times. The whole process was completely seamless.
Richard Isom, Commercial Manager, Events, Tottenham Hotspur Football & Athletic Co Ltd
Sorted out a location for us very last minute on a Friday evening and everything went super smoothly - our client was also very happy.
Josh Horwood, Content Producer
Easy to contact. Very considerate to your needs. Welcome to my house anytime.
Shelley Knowles, Residential Location Owner
I loved working with the team. They managed to pull off a fantastic job in such a short space of time.
Kanika Sood, Photographer
Helpful and responsive.
Kathleen Stein, Freelance Producer
We really enjoyed working with the Location Collective team. From the minute we met them we could see how passionate they are about what they do. Offering to clear the school for us and to cover the cost of this upfront made it a very easy decision to take the leap and give filming a try, and it was exciting to see the film crews in action on site. The funds that filming helped generate for the school are greatly appreciated.
Victoria Spence, Director of Operations & Clerk to the Governing Body, Big Creative Academy
Adam Griffiths, Assistant Producer
Very considerate treatment even though the resources I'm working with on the shoot are limited. Thanks!
Ana Baldini, Production Designer
Location Collective have brought us a high calibre of filming hires over the years and have managed them expertly and with minimal work required from our own events teams. Filming has added a significant revenue stream to our business, helping fill gaps where space would otherwise be left vacant, so it’s been hugely worthwhile. We would highly recommend working with Location Collective who have the expertise to ensure that fair, realistic rates are set for filming.

Great service, friendly staff, awesome locations!
Charlotte Peabody, Producer
Excellent service. Pleasant people.
Christian McWilliams, Location Manager
We have enjoyed a long and extremely successful working relationship with Location Collective who have taken brilliant care of Langleybury Mansion throughout our partnership, consistently and proactively placing Langleybury front and centre with the film industry to make the site truly iconic as a filming location. They have effectively managed a diary of multiple filming ‘pencils’, have ensured productions take good care of the site, and have worked closely with our on-site team to ensure hires go smoothly. I have no doubt we are in the safest possible hands for filming with the Location Collective team.
Christopher Andrews, Director, Ralph Trustees Limited

I have been working with Location Collective while trying to find a range of locations for two of ITV's shows. The team at Location Collective are fantastic at taking on any location brief and they respond with a great array of suggestions. They always find time to chat over the phone so they understand what you are looking for, negotiate a great deal and build a relationship with the location owners and the client so everything is set up for the shoot week. I would highly recommend.

Heinz Kloihofer, Commercial Lettings Manager, Landsec
Location Collective helped us realise there were ways to make money from the club that we would never have considered. The team there have been great. They are on the side of the club, making sure we get considered for anything that might work, and the team there always make sure we are looked after. The club would be in a very different position without all their hard work.
Janice Brittain, Peckham Liberal Club
Location Collective have been really great to work with. We have done a number of TV series' with them and they have made the whole process straight forward and actually great fun. They took great care with the contracting and kept us totally up to date with all sides of the production process. We look forward to working with them again.
Katrina Baer, Residential Location Owner
Location Collective fully understand our priorities as an event driven organisation and work to ensure that we can enjoy maximum benefit from filming whilst working within certain parameters.

They are a pleasure to work with and I hugely value our working relationship with them.

Myself and my business partner have had a long and fruitful relationship with Location Collective. We enjoy the experience of hosting film productions at the House of Detention, and we have seen a steady stream of quality filming and events enquiries over the years. The team understand the site and its challenges well and we appreciate the fact that they are able to oversee any filming recces themselves, which makes the whole process much more convenient for us.
Private Owner, House of Detention
Securing Blithe Spirit at Joldwynds has provided valuable income to support our restoration works. We have found our Account Manager to be professional, knowledgeable and supportive throughout the filming process.
