The charity making life better by water

Filming location fees

We charge location hire fees for commercial filming and photography on our canals, rivers, lake and docks. All the income generated from shoots goes towards caring for our waterways.

These fees are a guideline, you'll get a fee quote once you've completed your FilmApp application.

  • The fees below don’t include VAT (20%)
  • Fees for employee time, parking, third-party works assessments, towpath closures etc. apply in addition to the hourly location fee
  • You could be charged a late notice admin fee if you submit or amend your application less than 48 hours before the shoot date
  • Extra-large film crews (100+ people) will be subject to higher fees, please contact us for a bespoke estimate
  • For longer shoots, day rates are available on request
