The Event Locations Database
Landmarc Event Locations is a searchable database dedicated to showcasing Ministry of Defence sites that are available for commercial use.
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is one of the UK’s largest landowners with some 220,000 hectares, consisting of some 4000 built and rural sites. There are more than 45,000 buildings (excluding housing), including barracks, bunkers, naval bases, historic buildings, hangars and warehouses. The rural estate includes areas of outstanding natural beauty such as woods, plains and lakes, many of which are untouched by modern buildings or features.
The estate has provided locations for filming a wide range of productions including popular series such as East Enders, Casualty, Top Gear and Doctor Who, factual programmes such as Coast and Countryfile, drama including Silent Witness, Midsomer Murders, Sherlock, 24: Live Another Day, The Tunnel, Poirot and Miss Marple, feature films such as Skyfall, Anna Karenina, Les Miserables, X-Men, Mission Impossible, Edge of Tomorrow, The World is not Enough, The Monuments Men and The Man from UNCLE. Photo-shoots and music videos have also taken place on the estate utilising the wide range of often unique features.
All the locations in our database can be used for filming and many of them for other activities like motor-sport, airsoft, archery, mountain biking and much more.
