Filming & Photography

The Shakespeare Houses and Gardens are popular locations with photographers and film crews.  We  accommodate filming and photographic shoots whenever possible, within the constraints of the historic properties and public visiting times.  Income generated from facility fees helps us to maintain and preserve Shakespeare's legacy for future generations.

Interior filming is usually only possible outside public opening hours.  Any filming (interior and exterior) on Shakespeare Birthplace Trust property is charged.  Exceptions may be made for press photographers and broadcast news crews.  Film crews must provide evidence of sufficient public liability cover.

Birthplace  £180

Mary Arden's Farm  £180

Anne Hathaway's Cottage £100

Hall's Croft  £80

Hourly rates:

Exterior and interior filming outside public opening hours £100 per hour (1 hour minimum charge)

Additional charges may be applied for commercial projects.
