Marina, located on the Grand Union Canal in West London, has provided
the focus for a number of filming projects. The rich diversity of
views and vistas allows many different location requirements to
be met. Timber-fronted houses, Bistro, Wine Bar and colourful canalboats
all offer scope to enhance your next production. Family Affairs,
Channel 5's flagship soap, was filmed here for several years as
was Rosie & Jim, the well known children's series.
The marina has
also been used for location work in Indian films and 'talking heads'
interviews and presentations on various BBC and SkyTV programs.
Of course logistical and technical needs are important too.
The M4, M25, M40 and the
A312 Hayes Bypass offer dual carriageway connections almost to the
front gate. There is a separate car park to accommodate cast and
crew parking, and with large capacity electrical supply at various
key positions, power should not be an issue.
