UEA provides diverse filming spaces at competitive prices for large and small filming.  

UEA offers locations and crew facilities within two hours drive of London. Situated 15 minutes from the centre of the medieval city of Norwich, productions have convenient access to areas of outstanding national beauty, ninety miles of dynamic coastline all within a 40 minute drive. Norwich International and public transport are all easily accessible.

Over 350 acres of woodland and meadow, pathways, and rivers frame Brutalist architecture including Ziggurats and the Teaching Wall, designed by Denis Lasdun. These 1960's icons stand next to the glass and steel frame of Norman Foster’s Sainsbury Centre, which overlooks and reflects the surrounding landscape.

Within ten minutes walk of each other, discover teaching buildings offering 18th century charm, crisp architectural lines, glossy science labs and interiors, both neutral and bold. 

Facilities available include self-contained production area, crew parking, links to estate management, accommodation, catering and the support of a dedicated film coordinator. Helipad available by special arrangement.

UEA is home to Avengers HQ, BBC drama The Trick, Antiques Roadshow, and features on factual programmes for BBC and Sky.
