Filming & Photography

Owing to its varied architecture, beautiful gardens, spacious squares, historic halls and panelled rooms, Lincoln’s Inn has long been used by film production companies as a location, and by television companies for interviews as well as drama productions with either a legal theme or a period setting.

Permission

Permission to film or photograph anywhere on the estate is always required.

The estate of Lincoln’s Inn is in the midst of its biggest set of changes for well over a century and major works to the Great Hall, the Library and the Eastern Terrace mean that filming or photography projects have not taken place since July 2016.

While works are still underway across the estate and filming & photography options are limited, we are considering requests on a case by case basis and will accommodate them only where feasible.
