Our top 5 unique shoot locations in London
We’ve been running Fresh Locations for a dozen years now, so it’s no surprise that we’re now experts when it comes to shoot locations in London – here’s what we think makes a great location house…
Location Houses in London have become a well-known and popular phenomena in the last few years. But at this time when more and more companies and individuals are dipping into the location agency business, there’s a lot to be said for an experienced London location agency with a carefully curated library of handpicked locations in London – or a very reasonable drive away. So we thought we’d take the time to explore some of the best shoot locations in London and see what we can learn from them.
‘Wimbledon Manor’, in London SW19, is a fine example of the high calibre of location houses of London that we include in our library. It has a classic English country house atmosphere – with a sense of romance and abundance – and a great choice of rooms, on scales both lavish and intimate as well as a charming garden. It has proven popular with the filming clients and also works brilliantly for fashion shoots.
By way of absolute contrast, our ‘Pearl’ location house in London E4 is a minimal family home. We love the panelling and the crittal doors as well as the low-key lux of the marble in the bathrooms. It is awash with daylight, with contemporary good looks that make it a perfect London shoot location for lifestyle shoots.
Now we leap to another fabulous shoot location in London, ‘Sydenham Lodge’ a large, lateral house in South East London that brings a dose of Mid-Century Modern living to our shoot locations library. This Seventies home takes its character from its floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick and polished concrete floors. To complete the California-Modern vibe, it comes with its very own swimming pool. It works brilliantly for fashion shoots and its retro good looks can be channelled when our clients are keen to pin down a particular era.
Another jump across the capital, this time to South East London, sees us at ‘The Regency’ a detached period family home – you guessed it, from the Regency era – it comes with wonderful all the magnificent detailing you might expect, including panelling, fireplaces and beautifully proportioned, well-lit rooms. This London location house has been sensitively restored to balance character with a blank-canvas quality that makes it a versatile shoot location. We particularly love the inky-blue kitchen and the faded charms of the attic bedroom.
Last but not least, is a truly classic family home, ‘Woodfield’ shoot location in London SW12. We love the herringbone parquet floors and the graphic contrasts of the kitchen and the main bathroom with its turquoise and marble colour scheme. This West London location house perfectly balances period detail with contemporary touches to create a light and airy family home with true versatility – perfect for filming and lifestyle shoots.
Of course, this is just a taster of the many incredible shoot locations of London within our location agency. Our team of experts are ready to work closely with every client to find them the London location that’s perfect for their shoot.
