We can offer a range of potential filming and photo shoot locations, including our theme park, Zoo, SEA LIFE Centre, gardens and manor house. The Zoo is open all year round and the theme park between March and October.

Chessington is an attractive location in many ways:

  • Located 12 miles from London and just 2 miles from the A3 and M25
  • Nearby accommodation (there is a 4* hotel situated right next door to the Park)
  • Plenty of room for location vehicles to park
  • The theme park and Zoo is a contained area with everything from rollercoasters and bumper cars to a traditional carousel and water rides, plus incredible animals from lions, tigers, gorillas and sharks to goats, meerkats, spiders and sea lions!

We might not always be able to accommodate requests, but will look at each enquiry on an individual basis. Chessington has already been the venue of many TV programmes, so why not consider Chessington World of Adventures when deciding on the location for your next production?

All filming opportunities are subject to a pre-filming site visit with a member of the Press Office team. To enable us to best fulfil your requirements, please allow as much notice as possible. For more information or to discuss further, please contact the Chessington Press Office directly at or on 01372 731 563.
