Filming & Photography

All you need to know about filming and photographic shoots at Shakespeare's family homes.

The Shakespeare Houses and Gardens are popular locations with photographers and film crews from across the world.  Whenever possible, we will accommodate filming and photographic shoots, within the constraints of the historic properties and public visiting times.  Income generated from facility fees helps us to maintain and preserve Shakespeare's legacy for future generations.

Filming inside the historic homes is usually only possible outside public opening hours. 

Any filming (interior and exterior) on Shakespeare Birthplace Trust property is charged.  Exceptions may be made for press photographers and broadcast news crews. 

Facility fees: £180 (one-off)
Hourly rates: Exterior and interior filming £100 per hour (1 hour minimum charge) 

All filming and photography must be agreed in advance.  We reserve the right to refuse or withdraw permission to film or photograph the properties. Film crews must provide evidence of sufficient public liability cover.  

If you would like to arrange filming or photography at any of our sites, please complete our filming request form and return it to
