Filming at Harrow
Harrow School has provided the backdrop to many a feature film, drama or photoshoot over the past twenty years. We have provided the location for films such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. We have hosted dramas such as The Crown and Dr Foster. The School has also been the scene of glossy magazine shoots for GQ, Vogue Burberry and Penguin Originals, and the subject of historical documentaries.
We firmly believe in being a film friendly venue, and a location that offers more than just one location. With 250 acres of countryside in North London, and a variety of buildings dating between 1615 and 2011, we have a location for every occasion.
The School has its own unit base (up to 100 cars in size), and is only ten miles from Central London by car, or a fifteen minute ride to Baker Street on the Metropolitan Line from Harrow on the Hill Underground station.
Over the years, we have listened carefully to location managers about what they are looking for. This website is a product of that knowledge, and allows you to browse the locations we have available to you. We have arranged locations by category to help your search. We keep adding locations, so please do check back on a regular basis.
It is very important to note that we are a school, so availability is limited, but we do have eighteen weeks a year in which filming can take place and like to create long term relationships with location managers who understand the heritage and culture in filming in such a historical space. Please contact us for more information.
