Award-winning team of experts

The general style of the building exudes a delightful sense of unity with the buildings of the Precincts which they had in the medieval days, echoing the familiar face of the old Dean’s Yard. Flint-work was chosen not only for a strong looking and rich base to the high superstructure but also for its durability and cleanliness. The terrace features old stones from the older Abbey building, giving strength and dignity to the façade. Stunning sash windows above the flint-faced lower story, interspersed with stone-mullioned windows are set within the flint-work where the masons have shown their greatest skill.
Once inside, the film location venue offers stylish backdrops which include both intimate rooms as well as large airy spaces. Polished English oak paneling, Art Deco chandeliers, and classically inspired architectural details can be seen throughout the building. Curved corridors and modern staircases accommodate both live-action shoots and still photography. The extensive and versatile film location venue provides 19 event spaces of 2,000 square metres that can easily accommodate wardrobe changes and catering areas.
Stunning 360-degree rooftop views across central London from the 7th floor of the film location venue is ideal for news reporting, shooting pieces to camera for interviews and documentaries or photography shoots with iconic London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye as a backdrop.
