The New Forest plays host to a variety of unique filming locations from its untouched woodland and far-reaching heathland, a vast 43-mile coastline to historic buildings, flowing rivers, picturesque roads, industrial sites, bygone villages, free-roaming animals, and much more.
Locations listed include town and village centres, tourist attractions and private residences. Please note that if you are looking to film in the forest itself (woodland/heathland) you can view a list of locations on the Forestry Commission here.
If you already know that the location is on crown land (forest/heathland) then directly contact email@example.com / Phone 0300 067 4600 or alternatively a member of the Film: New Forest team will assist you.
If the planned filming location is on New Forest District Council land; permission can be given by the team. If the filming is to take place on parish council land then a member of the team will signpost you to where permission must be sought.
Typically a fee will only be charged for filming on council land if there is a cost implication on our side, such as the closure of a car park. Clarification can be given on a project-by-project basis from the Film:New Forest team. The Forestry Commission have their own guidelines on fees, consult firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Depending on the nature and location of filming, you may also need to notify the police, any private landowners as appropriate, and the Hampshire Highways Dept. (especially if road closures are required).
