If you wish to film in the Swale area of Kent, contact the Kent Film Office who can assist with finding locations, obtaining film permits for filming in public areas and facilitate traffic management requests.

The Swale Borough of Kent is home to some lovely coast, marshland, towns and traditional villages.

The Isle of Sheppey is an island lying just off the North Kent Coast, connected to the mainland by two bridges. The area has both sandy and pebble beaches, some lined with colourful beach huts and towns such as Queenborough which offers a harbour and views over the Medway Estuary.

Faversham is a beautiful historic market town with cobbled streets set on Faversham Creek and is one of the longest Georgian streets in the South East. The town is also home to, Shepherd Neame Brewery, the oldest working brewery in the UK, with a museum, visitor centre and of course, a pub.

Marshland is plentiful in the Swale area of Kent with Oare Marshes providing 81 hectares of grazing marsh with freshwater dykes, open water scrapes, seawall and saltmarsh and Elmley Marshes offering a special marsh landscape with remote and peaceful meadows and waterways.

There are also some gorgeous historic houses such as Doddington Place which is a redbrick Victorian mansion surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland and Belmont House, an elegant eighteenth century house set in 700 acres of woodlands.

The area has been chosen as a film location by productions including Southcliffe (2013), Great Expectations (2012) and The Sweeney (2012).
