The Southbank Centre has taken the decision to require face coverings to be worn in our buildings from Wed 1 December as an additional measure. We want to ensure that we’re doing all we can to help keep our audiences, staff and artists safe at this time. Find out more

    Location filming and photography

    Need an iconic London location for filming & photography?

    Southbank Centre’s buildings, riverside location and iconic central London backdrops provide standout settings for film, TV & photography shoots.

    Our site can accommodate a wide variety of interior and exterior film and photography shoots. It’s no wonder we’ve played a part in hundreds of productions over the years, from Killing Eve to Calvin Klein.

    Our location on the River Thames is the perfect vantage point for some of London’s most recognisable skyline with the London Eye and Houses of Parliament to the west and St Paul’s Cathedral and the City to the east.

    Our celebrated architecture, with its grey concrete buildings and multilevel walkways offers an authentically gritty setting for shoots that call for an urban feel.

    Areas we manage include the portion of the Queen’s Walk from the London Eye to Waterloo Bridge and the space between the Thames and Belvedere Road encompassing the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Hayward Gallery and surrounding walkways.

    Looking for a unique indoor setting? We can also provide flexible spaces for interior filming.
