Filming at the Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum is a great location for filming both dramas and documentaries. It has three beautiful eighteenth century interiors containing the Foundling Hospital Collections as well as contemporary spaces.

We particularly welcome film crews on Mondays when the Museum is closed but we can also accommodate crews during opening hours in exceptional circumstances.

The Foundling Museum has been used as a location by film companies for programmes and series which include Blue Peter, the Antiques Roadshow, the Kate Adie documentary Found, the BBC4 series Birth of the British Novel, the David Dimbleby series Seven Ages of Britain, the Amanda Vickery series At Home with the Georgians, the BBC2 series Show Me the MonetThe One Show and projects for independent film, radio and photography.
