We're also happy to provide a production and accommodation base for filming in Wiltshire, Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
As an accredited Film Commission, we've been offering this service since 1993, and have built up an excellent film friendly reputation throughout the industry. We have strong links with our regional partners, Creative England South and Bristol Film Office.
Our film-friendly service offers you:-
