Historic Fort Amherst offers a range of filming opportunities, and has already been the chosen location for several films.

From box-office hits like Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows or The Darkest Hour – to amateur productions or photo locations, it offers amazing shooting opportunities.

Set in 20 acres of parkland, Britain’s biggest and best restored Napoleonic fort is just 40 minutes from London (45 minutes from the Channel Tunnel).

Few locations can offer the perfect back-drop for such a variety of productions. Imagine how you could creatively use: caves and tunnels; a soldiers’ barracks; cannon and fortifications; or even a Grand Magazine and Gate house. Not to mention atmospheric ruins, well-tended lawns and ‘rougher’ grassland.

We’d love to help! Please contact Fort Amherst to discuss your needs, or to arrange a visit.
