Our streets have been made world famous by the hundreds of films, TV shows and commercials shot here. They’re one of the most popular locations in London, and we’re proud to share them on screen.
To fit a historical period or meet the demands of the story, designers change the look of the streets or add sets.

LERA deals directly with productions over all resident aspects of filming, and we encourage you to get in touch at the earliest opportunity. We will happily discuss your project and aim to work with you – it’s essential to strike a balance between your needs and what residents can live with, and experience has proved that direct relationships are best for you and us. We will discuss consulting residents and a community payment, depending on the type of production and what’s involved but along typical industry lines. Your donations enable the important work featured elsewhere on our website, which is good for everyone, and we’re grateful for them.
You still need to approach Lambeth Council for any of its services of course, such as parking suspensions and traffic orders. Brad Street isn’t under council control, so you should ask The Arch Company about filming there.
Please click here to download the LERA Filming Code. We developed it with industry professionals, reflecting Film London best practice guidelines, and it’s endorsed by Lambeth Council. Our residents have the assurance they can trust productions following the code, and we hope you’ll find it practical, flexible and helpful.
