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.

All fees are approximate, you'll get a fee quote when you submit your completed application.

The fees provided below are guidelines only, you will receive a fee quote based on the information provided in your application.

  • Fees are exclusive of VAT (20%) which will be added to the invoice.
  • Additional fees for staff time, parking, third party works assessments, towpath closures etc. may apply on top of location fees.
  • You may 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
