What’s filmed with us?
We've managed thousands of shoots in our stations and on our property. Look below to see a few examples of the some of the projects we've helped to bring to fruition.
London Liverpool Street features in series 3 of the hugely popular Killing Eve, in a dramatic scene that plays out on the platforms of the station. The crew filmed through the night with a band of background artists - used to mimic a busy station - and a train was bought in, specifically for their use.
Liverpool Lime Street, London King's Cross and Birmingham New Street, all got to feature in EE's phenomenal 5G ad, with the latter station taking the starring role. With its great music, fun vibe and mesmerising visuals, the commercial made history as the world's first AR gig to be broadcast live using 5G technology.
Danny Boyle's latest comedy adventure returned him to Liverpool Lime Street, (he previously shot Millions there). Thrust into the action, the station features in a crucial scene where the main character, Jack, is forced to make a difficult decision. Will he manage to fulfil his lifelong dreams, and get the girl? Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
Warner Brothers wound the clock back nearly 100 years when they transformed London King's Cross into a World War I station over one weekend in 2016. A full day's preparation was required to take the station back to 1918, with period signals, offices and signage built. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
The Imitation Game
London King's Cross was sent back to World War II when The Imitation Game filmed in the station in 2013. The production took over one platform for the shoot, bringing in a period train and filling the platform with background artists in period dress. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
Paddington and Paddington 2
Both Paddington films shot at London Paddington firstly in Autumn 2013 and again in Winter 2016. The first film used large camera cranes and constructed a lost and found office on Platform 1, and even brought in stunt pigeons! The sequel kicked off the film's finale with two specially charted trains running side by side out of the station. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
The locations team working on the fourth series of the award winning Downton Abbey chose London St. Pancras International to shoot a key scene involving Lady Edith and her love interest, Gregson. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
London King’s Cross is synonymous with the world famous Harry Potter films. The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets and The Deathly Hallows from the J.K. Rowling series filmed extensively at the station, where a permanent tribute of the famous platform 9 ¾ has been erected in their honour. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
The Bletchley Circle
London St. Pancras International was the location of choice for the period drama The Bletchley Circle, with the Production building a departure board to hide the Eurostar trains, and bringing in vintage cars and extras in period costume to take this magical station back to post-war times. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
Scott and Bailey
Scott and Bailey filmed extensive sequences in Manchester Piccadilly during their second series, working closely with station management to ensure a safe shoot. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
The infamous T-mobile flashmob commercial went viral in 2009 and triggered plenty of imitations around the globe. Sam Taylor, Head of Advertising at T-Mobile at the time said: "When planning our shoot we were really keen for it to take place at a recognisable and iconic venue so London Liverpool Street station was an obvious choice."
The third part of the commercially successful franchise, The Bourne Ultimatum, was filmed at London Waterloo back in the Autumn of 2006. The sequence took several days to shoot and employed some novel techniques to avoid busy commuters disrupting takes. Available now on DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital.
