Filming Location Options in Cambridge

Let's take a look at the multiple aspects needed to successfully spend your time in a filming studio in the city of Cambridge.

  • Filming Accessories
    The number of filming accessories in the 21st century is astronomical! Just thinking about all the little gadgets you could use can send your head in a tizzy. Luckily, in Cambridge, there are many shops with professional photographers and filmers that you can talk with to make sure that you get everything you need for the shot you are going for!

  • Animation

  • Makeup Artist
    Hiring a makeup artist on set will help with achieving the look your actors need for the whole filming session. If you are going to be in the filming studio for more than a few days, you will want your actor or actress to look exactly the same in each take. That is where your hired makeup artist will shine.

  • Creative Director
    Putting together a filming studio, film crew, actors and everything else takes a lot of time – and work! If you are in this alone, it may be a good idea to hire a creative director to take some of the load off your shoulders. Creative Directors schedule and take care of most things behind the scenes and help budget the project. If you feel you need some help to stay organized, a creative director is definitely something to look into.

Pros and Cons of Filming Locations in Cambridge


  • Bicycle Culture
    There are many inclusive cycling routes all throughout Cambridge. The city is quite easy to get around on a bike and its a better way to travel here due to the roads being congested with tourists.

  • Prestigious Education
    Cambridge is not only known for their education system, but for how many schools they have in general. If you want a world-renowned education and can’t see yourself at Oxford, Cambridge is a twin city to consider.

  • Historical Architecture
    Centuries-old architecture can be found in Cambridge. Between the chapels and the schools, you can go throughout time and get a very clear view of each period’s design style, from contemporary, neoclassical and even gothic.

  • Foodie Culture
    With all the tourists coming and going and the entertainment events happening in Cambridge, food festivals are key a part of the culture here. Not only are there festivals, but top-star Michelin chefs come through and do masterclasses or workshops for those willing to learn.


  • Pollution
    One of the main sources of emissions in Cambridge is traffic. Diesel cars and busses contribute to a pollution problem in the city, and it is starting to affect the health of inhabitants.

  • Traffic
    The number of tourists that come through Cambridge is over 3 million! This accounts for the traffic problem within the city and is why a lot of the residents ride their bikes. While having tourists to fuel the city’s economy is great, sitting in hours-long traffic to get across the city is not fun at all, especially if you have somewhere to be.

  • Tourist
    If you’re trying to find a photo studio in the city of Cambridge, it may be a hard task because of the influx of tourists that come each year. Booking hotels, historical sites and other venues may need to be done well in advance.

  • Expensive
    Cambridge holds the title of one of the most expensive cities to live in in the UK. The cost of living – not including paying your rent or mortgage – is very high in comparison to many other cities.

Famous Locations in Cambridge

  • Mathematical Bridge
    The Mathematical Bridge in Cambridge was designed by William Etheridge in 1748 and was built by James Essex the Younger in 1749. The bridge was built by compression gravity and is made out of wood (which does not bend) – quite a unique design, indeed!

  • Kings College
    Located beside the Great River Cam resides Kings College. Founded in 1441 the mid-century building features impressive medieval architecture and has a larger-than-life feeling to it. Within the college, there is a Gothic chapel. The chapel has the world’s largest fan vault ceiling surrounded by beautiful horizontal stained glass windows. The attention to detail within this college is immaculate, and something to gain inspiration from while trying to find a photo studio in Cambridge.

  • Castle Hill
    Castle Hill is the site of the original settlement we now know as the land of Cambridge. The people settled here because it was convenient to cross the River Cam from this hill. These days, the “castle hill” is only a mound of remains from the original castle, but in the Anglo-Saxon period, it was used as a key defence spot.
