Dulwich College

The historic buildings of Dulwich College, founded in 1619, provide a striking backdrop for many types of film and TV Drama productions.

Set in 70 acres of leafy grounds, the College feels part of the countryside yet remains conveniently located for quick access to central London making Dulwich College the ideal Unit Base/Production HQ when Filming in London.

History, tradition and beauty make Dulwich College a popular choice for filming and photo-shoots and we welcome film, television and photographic crews.

Our team has experience in dealing with all types of location work, from big-budget feature films to small editorial photo shoots.
Bordered by the South Circular, the College grounds provide parking for up to 250 and comfortably accommodate a sizeable film unit. The site is large, easily accessible and clients appreciate its proximity to central London.

Whilst the information contained on this site will give you an indication of the range of locations we have at the College, we also encourage location managers to visit us.

For big shoots in particular, we ask that filming is confined to weekends and school holidays. The College is a school and it is of paramount importance that the school routine is not disrupted. Night shoots are possible during the week, but crews cannot usually enter the site until after the school day ends at 4pm. This is a general rule and special circumstances can prevail on occasion by arrangement.

“One of the most beautiful and friendly places I know to shoot at. With so many locations on campus, it serves a multitude of needs.” Simon Hassard, Film Location Manager.
