Location Search

As one of the leading UK location agencies, Locations Direct makes the hunt for filming locations as simple as can be with a handy location search tool. This allows you to browse locations by categories, keywords, or image tags to whittle the choices down to your ideal location. Furthermore, the powerful search engine allows you to filter and refine your search results so that you can cater your search directly to your needs. You can do this by adding more than one search option into the search bar to filter down the results. 

The search engine allows you to explore an exciting assortment of location types, by clicking ‘Locations’ > ‘Filter’. This will offer up residential spaces, halls, studios, venues, derelict and wasteland, public buildings, parks, housing estates, streets, paths, alleyways, sport and recreation grounds, and so much more. It is safe to say that you will not be short of options when scouting out a new filming location. You can also search by general areas; this is simply broken down into counties, inside the M25, outside the M25, South East London, South West London, East London, North West London, West London, North London, Central London. We have also added a ‘London Borough’ search filter for Residential properties, this allows you to look at Houses and Apartments in specific London Boroughs, for example, Southwark, Lambeth, Bromley, Lewisham, Lambeth, Haringey, Brent, Ealing, and Camden. 

Job Folders

We give you the option to create, view, and share job folders via our convenient ‘Collections’ tab. You can easily group locations and receive feedback from the rest of your team on what they like and don’t like directly through the website. This can be done by clicking the ‘Approved’ or ‘Rejected’ buttons within the folder, which will then update in anyone’s folder that you have shared the link with. This neat tool gives you the ability to share and review locations with clients without sending multiple links and emails, allowing you to make an informed decision quickly and easily. Once you feel confident about your decision, you can enquire about your select/s and book when you are satisfied.

Such intricate organisation allows for a smooth-running project, creating a stress-free filming atmosphere. 


Once you have whittled down your choices, you may need a bit more information before taking the ultimate leap to select your final location. If this is the case, a film location scout can certainly be of aid for photographing any locations that you are after. We aim to find, shoot, and secure any needed filming or photography locations. You can quite simply email us with any enquiries regarding availability and rates to get your location hunt started.

This takes all the guesswork out of selecting the right filming location, creating portfolios of your desired locations to compare and contrast. 


Despite the wide array of locations on offer, your vision might differ slightly, meaning that your desired location is not available on the Locations Direct website. This is not a problem! Locations Direct vows to help you track down any location you need regardless of whether it is listed on our website or not. 

You can contact us with the brief and we will take all the leg work out of finding the ideal setting to convey your vision. Much like our scouting service, availability and rates will differ, so you will need to reach out via email to confirm this information.

Click to Buy

Waiting around for access to a location can be frustrating and damaging to the filming process, however, we have a handy solution. Through our ‘Click to Buy’ service, you will be charged a small fee for immediate access to the addresses, contact details, and rate cards of any council-run locations on the Locations Direct website. This then allows you to book directly with the film office for a seamless service. 

This will enable you to get started with the filming process as soon as possible, whilst the project is still fresh and exciting. An enthusiastic start makes for a more successful and engaging result.

Build Your Own Library

Once you have purchased your Click to Buy locations, you can easily store them in your personal library. This gives you the option to browse your previously used and saved locations, creating easy access for future reference. Creating an account is easy and seamless, allowing you to log back in whenever necessary to retrieve your locations history.

How to Find Filming Locations

Finding the right location for filming is unequivocally vital for telling your audience what to expect from the film or TV episode. A lot can be determined about the genre from the original setting, with the presence of an abandoned house screaming horror and a swanky restaurant radiating romance. 

It is easy to know where you want to set your latest blockbuster in your head, however, you might not know how to find filming locations in reality. Thankfully, Locations Direct is a leading film location agency, working across London and the rest of the UK. We provide a film location search service, offering up filming locations throughout the UK. We take all the struggle away from finding the perfect filming locations.
