Lights, camera, action! Come and film in the Arun District

Boasting award-winning beaches and parks, picturesque villages, unique architecture and a wealth of heritage, Arun offers a great setting to film your best scenes.

Examples include the beauty and heritage of Green Flag-winning Hotham Park in Bognor Regis, and the East Bank in Littlehampton which has recently been completely transformed with a spacious, modern design including huge stones for the public to sit on and gaze out to sea.

If it’s a historical backdrop you’re after, Arundel is famous for its stunning castle and cathedral and most of Arun’s attractions offer parking close by.

In addition, if you are seeking permission to film on Arun District Council owned or controlled land, it’s very straightforward as we have one main point of contact for all enquiries and we charge very reasonable rates.

Please contact Arun District Council on 01903 737920 to discuss your requirements, or email
