Rural And Educational Filming Backdrops

Available year-round as a unique filming location, Regent’s presents an outdoor space unlike any other in London. A magical setting is created over five acres of landscaped gardens for festival scenes, weddings, summer garden parties and period drama film set hire. Inside, the university’s spaces lend themselves to filming academic scenes for schools, lectures, conferences or educational documentaries.

The building’s classic features, red brick architecture and neatly adorned exterior with beautiful ivy and seasonal wisteria make for an impressive filming location backdrop. A choice of more than 10 indoor spaces, a film studio and full use of the outdoors, including a tennis and basketball court for sport related filming opportunities, are available seven days a week from 6am until 11pm. In some cases, term time restrictions may apply for film site hire.

"The food, and service first class. Couldn’t fault a thing, hopefully we will be back soon!!"
Andrew Blackman; Pantheon Ventures (UK) LLP
"We mentioned your team. They were incredible. The food itself was out of this world – the menu choice for what anyone would perceive as “just a University” was more in keeping with a 5-star hotel (and better in fact than some of the 5-star hotels we considered locally.) And then the quality of the food – it is quite impossible to conceive that it is possible to create 250 covers so impeccably."
Simon & Nicki Carter
"We are immensely proud of our beautiful gardens at Regent's. Not only do they provide an excellent setting in which to study, but they also reflect our commitment to biodiversity and sustainability. We want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to enjoy them and learn more about our institution's fascinating history."
Professor Aldwyn Cooper
"Thank you so much for all your help in making our event on Wednesday such a success. Our delegates were very complimentary about the lovely venue, the beautiful grounds, and the excellent catering. All the arrangements were spot on and went like clockwork – you all made my job so easy, thank you! I very much hope we have the opportunity to work with you again in the future, and I’ll certainly recommend your venue to any of my colleagues who are looking for somewhere in central London."
Affinity Sutton
"I would like to say a big thank you to you and the Conferences team for the great work that went into a successful evening last night. The decorative details were beautiful and really fitted the occasion. I have heard from (the hosts of the private dinner that the meal and service was excellent. We really do appreciate the work that went into a great evening for our guests."
