Filming in the Borough

Last Updated:

If you are interested in filming in the Tonbridge and Malling area, get in touch with the Kent County Council Film Office who can find locations, obtain film permits for filming in public areas, and facilitate traffic management requests.

The borough offers delightful orchards, farms and countryside as well as charming villages including Aylesford and West Malling, and towns such as Tonbridge, which is a market town home to the 11th century Tonbridge Castle, tucked beside the River Medway.

Location Highlights

  • Tonbridge Castle
  • Aylesford Priory - The Friars which dates back to the 12th century and has indoor and outdoor chapels, stunning courtyards, various event spaces and large car parking facilities.
  • Oxon Hoath an Edwardian house set in over 73 acres of gardens and parkland.
  • Bradbourne House a Queen Anne Mansion with a lake, ballroom and small panelled library.
