Filming, Photography and Fees

Colchester Castle on a sunny day

We are proud to support local community photographers and film makers. Please get in touch if you’d like to speak with us about opportunities in our wonderful venues.

We get a lot of filming requests to use the museum sites and services and we are always very happy to hear about your filming requirements.

Whether it’s a history programme, a special documentary, drama or using our collections to illustrate a programme’s content, we are happy to talk through your ideas and proposals.

We have a lot of experience with filming in our unique buildings and giving access to filming our collections. We also have a number of specialist staff who are experienced in in front of the camera if you need an interview on a particular subject.

We enjoy working with filming professionals. Every filming request is assessed on a case-by-case basis and we reserve the right to decline permission for filming.

For all filming enquiries, including information about our charges and paranormal films, and image purchase for commercial book and research publications (non-editorial and PR), please contact us.
