Filming

Royal Collection Trust’s Press Office deals with requests to film and record at the official royal residences. Filming applications must relate to works of art in the Royal Collection or the public opening of the royal residences in order to be considered. 

Location and reality filming are not permitted at the official royal residences, and un-commissioned filming projects will not be considered. 

To submit a request, please read the Filming and Recording Guidelines and complete an Application Form - both can be found below.

Application Forms must be submitted to [email protected] a minimum of six weeks before the preferred date of filming. Please note that all requests are subject to approval.

The current filming and recording facility fee is £300 + VAT per hour, plus a supervision fee of £25 + VAT per person per hour. For details of the costs of stills and transmission fees, please contact the Royal Collection Trust Picture Library.
