Filmed in Herts

Filmed in Herts

As one of the UK’s leading filming destinations, Hertfordshire is known for attracting and delivering internationally acclaimed film and TV productions such as Harry Potter and The Crown.

Our recent screen product audit identifies the backlog of filming that has taken place in the county. The audit demonstrates the importance of post-production destination promotion to not only support viewing figures, but to also provide further economic benefits through the development of screen tourism products which help drive footfall and spend in the location.

Firstly, I must say, thank you for hosting us, it was a real breeze filming with you and your team; and secondly, I would like to say that I have done several projects in and around the Hemel area, and I have always found your approach easier than many 'film friendly' boroughs in London. On a personal note, I would like to thank the filming team at Dacorum for going above and beyond in assisting us with our search(s). You were extremely helpful and certainly someone I would recommend.

Having a main point of contact at Dacorum was very helpful and useful, given all the paperwork and working out who to speak to / get permission from . The team made it very simple for us to be able to film in Hemel Hempstead and then with all the changes , it was such a godsend that you were able to allow us to change things at such short notice and reschedule and then revisit which you permitted us to move to a week day . The shoot days went well, and everyone was very kind to us. We would certainly return to the area again in the future

We run Old Town Coffee & Cake and found the whole experience very positive - the film crew were friendly and amenable, and happy to enjoy what we had to offer. We'd be more than happy to have more filming happen along the High Street if it's all as positive an experience.

Frogmore Mill is run by an education and preservation charity committed to heritage and the environment. What better way of sharing our heritage than through the big or small screen! We have a bit of everything on our site which has been operating as a mill for a thousand years. Many areas have remained completely untouched for centuries. Our staff and volunteers work alongside production companies to make sure they have everything they need, from parking to power- we have plenty of both and our power comes from 100% renewable sources! The great thing about welcoming professional set designers, art teams and directors is that they sometimes see potential in our site we would never have thought about, which is tremendously inspiring. Not only does filming get our wonderful industrial heritage site out into the world, it is also a vital revenue stream for the Trust, which receives no government funding. Productions of any size provide the funds we need to invest in our historic buildings and equipment, preserving them for future generations. It also provides valuable publicity. We are also a great option for productions who are thinking about their environmental credentials. Not only have we been recycling paper here since 1895, we also provide award winning education sessions for schools about sustainability and recycling. We have ambitions to become an eco-learning centre, therefore any production filmed here is directly helping us towards achieving this goal.
