Filming at Whipsnade Zoo

With an ever increasing portfolio of productions which have been filmed with us here at Whipsnade, our reputation as a great choice for filming locations is growing rapidly. We are very film friendly and happy to accommodate production and photography crews of all sizes throughout the year.

Easy filming locations in Hertfordshire

We aim to simplify your complex production process with our offering of an array of different types of film and photography locations spread over two sites and large spaces ideal for unit base parking based right here at Whipsnade.

London Zoo is located on the outskirts of Regent's Park in Central London and Whipsnade Zoo can be found in the heart of Bedfordshire with good access from the M1.

Both sites offer a variety of unique backdrops, from urban to rural while architecture is dated from the Victorian age to present day - and don't forget the animals!
