A film, TV or photographic company? Interested in filming in Waverley?

We have the perfect locations for you...

The borough of Waverley is situated three miles away from Guildford, just one hour from central London, 25 miles from Shepperton Studios and covers the beautiful countryside from Farnham in the west to Cranleigh in the east.

We have four major towns (Godalming, Haslemere, Cranleigh and Farnham) with many beautiful villages and picturesque countryside in between. We have a range of locations including historic buildings, office space, countryside, historic and modern parks, car parks and lakes.

We manage the sites that belong to Waverley Borough Council such as Farnham Park and Frensham Great Pond. We will assess each request on an individual basis. If the land you want to film on is not owned by Waverley, we will signpost you in the right direction.
