Commercial Filming & Photography

Commercial Filming & Photography

Port Lympne and Howletts Wild Animal Parks in Kent are gaining a reputation as a great choice for filming locations. We are very film friendly and are happy to accommodate crews of all shapes and sizes.

We understand that choosing the right location for filming can be a difficult task, so to make it easy we provide a variety of locations at our two sites – we can even supply the sandwiches!

We with worked with a number of productions over the years including Sky 3D, Daybreak, The One Show, Hairy Bikers, Animal Planet and Getty Images to name just a few, so you will be in good hands!
