Filming in Sefton

With world renowned public art installations, listed buildings and heritage sites, Sefton is a unique borough that climbs the coast of England from the top of Liverpool to the bottom of Lancashire.  

The 23 miles of picturesque coast is comprised of beautiful beaches and vast stunning landscapes of sand dunes and woodlands. It is also a wildlife haven and home to the Natterjack Toad, Red Squirrel and lots more.

There are 5 Grade II listed parks in Sefton, including the recently refurbished King's Gardens in Southport.

Along with postcard picture locations, Sefton is also home to both Aintree Racecourse and Royal Birkdale Golf Course, along with many other sporting venues.

Having played host to a number of film crews from the BBC, Sky Atlantic, Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon and more, Sefton has well deserved 'Film Friendly' status and the local authority will always endeavour to accommodate any sized production.

All filming requests, regardless of size, must be assessed and approved by Sefton Council's Corporate Communications team.

To contact the team, please email with a brief outline of your proposed filming dates, details of the production, any potential requirements and a copy of your organisation's Public Liability Insurance.

Permission to film is not guaranteed and the time frame for applications to be reviewed is 5 working days.
