Filming and Photography



Battersea Arts Centre is a beautiful old town hall, with a range of locations – from gothic corridors to opulent entrance halls – which lend themselves perfectly to filming and photography. In the space of one building, we can cover a range of scenes and styles, from old to new, from grand to faded grandeur.

We stand out as a central London filming location by offering on-street parking and easy load-in. The Grand Hall has direct access to Town Hall Road, a private road, where vehicles can park and unload into the space. The Council Chamber can also be accessed via the same entrance and then via a lift to the second floor.

We have technical staff onsite to advise on power and load-in and we can happily supply more hands on deck for an additional charge. Anti-social hours (between 10pm and 10am) are available for filming however additional charges will apply. Due to our residential location, we are not permitted to conduct load-in and load-outs between the hours of 11pm and 7.30am but filming can take place during these times with loading either side.


Nothing beats seeing a venue first-hand, so please get in touch with us today to arrange a viewing with a member of our events team.
