If you would like to film in the Gravesham Borough of Kent, the Kent County Council Film Office can assist productions to find locations, obtain film permits for filming in public areas and facilitate traffic management requests.
Gravesham is home to the market town of Gravesend, situated on the south bank of the Thames boasting the oldest remaining cast iron pier in the world, a promenade, high street and shopping centres. The wider Gravesham area offers traditional British countryside and villages in the North Kent Downs.
The area has many open spaces including Woodlands Park which is home to the Gravesend Cold War Bunker built in 1954. Nearby, Shorne Woods Country Park offers a visitor centre, café, a sensory garden, picnic and play areas and rolling woodlands, wetlands and meadows.
Cobham Hall is a private school set in 150 acres of parkland. The popular film location provides a ball room, library, cobbled courtyards, formal gardens, modern classrooms and sports facilities.
The National Trust has two sites in the borough of Gravesham – Cobham Wood and Mausoleum, a vast woodland park home to the 18th Century Darnley Mausoleum and Owletts which is a Charles II house set in beautiful gardens.
Easily accessible to London, the area is near the high speed rail link at Ebbsfleet International and the M2 motorway.
