Making your experience of filming in Thanet a good one

We hope that within these pages you will find your ideal location and information on how we can help.

Thanet has so much to offer in a variety of locations.  The area is surrounded on three sides by 19 miles of coastline. All of our beaches are made up of soft sand, but they vary from Botany Bay to Viking Bay.

To give you an idea of what the area looks like, we commissioned a film to show you what locations you can see in the area starting at Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour and following the coast round to Minnis Bay.
