Rich in heritage Pinewood has been host to some of the silver screens most well known moments and a succession of box office hits.
Situated just west of London in the grounds of an old Victorian manor house, Pinewood has been a leading destination for the makers of film, television and commercials since opening its doors as a film studio in 1936.
There are 18 stages here at Pinewood and 3 exterior lots that can be used for everything from the most ambitious of set builds to CGI and photo shoots.
Our 5 post production theatres are supported by 2 ADR/foley suites and are located in close proximity to our editing suites and cutting rooms.
Pinewood’s 2 large digital television studios can accommodate the most elaborate of sets and lighting rigs, they are complemented by a team of expert technicians, and associated production accommodation such as galleries, green rooms, offices, luxury dressing rooms and flexible audience seating for up to 300 people.
We are also home to a permanently filled underwater filming stage and one of the largest exterior water tanks in Europe in addition to interior tanks on 6 of our stages.
If that’s not enough our old house, formal gardens, fields offices and industrial areas, provide ideal filming locations within secure studio grounds.
But it’s not just world class facilities and versatility that put Pinewood at the forefront of the film and television industry, the complex houses a studio village – a wealth of specialist media and production support companies, so no matter what your requirements are you’ll find expert assistance on site.
There is a variety of useful services in the surrounding areas too. You won’t have to travel far to find luxury hotels, spas and award winning restaurants, as well as more practical solutions such as suppliers of natural scenery, construction companies and artisans.
