Filming and photography

All our wonderful venues are available for filming and photography. See inspiring locations in our photo gallery and read about some of the productions that have been filmed here.


Visitors are welcome to use mobile phones, hand-held cameras and video recorders on site, including the use of flash, for non-commercial photography. Tripods are not allowed, with the exception of disabled visitors who can use them in the Great Bath and Terrace areas only. Please contact us if you would like more information.

Commercial photography and filming     

The Roman Baths and Pump Room are stunning backdrops for commercial photography shoots and for film crews. The site has featured in many history programmes as well as holiday and travel shows. Due to the busy nature of the site we may insist that commercial photography takes place out of hours, namely in the evening or early morning. Commercial photographers and film crews must abide by our code of practice for photography. For further information, our code of practice and current filming and commercial photography fees please email us.
