Filming on Tresco

With its unique, varied and beautiful landscape, Tresco has provided a location for numerous films, television programmes and editorial and commercial photoshoots over the years...

From the rugged cliffs of the north end to the fine soft sands of the south; the wooded heart of the island to the subtropical splendour of the Abbey Garden, Tresco is a remarkable natural environment. Our built architecture is equally varied, from modern, beachfront holiday cottages to crumbling castles.

Tresco provides a huge variety of stunning locations for films, TV, commercial and editorial photoshoots, and we can provide bespoke assistance and logistical support to help make your production a reality.

Filming Permission

Private photographers taking stills or videos of the island for personal use do not require specific permission, though we would always ask that you do not disturb or inconvenience other visitors or residents on the island. Please note that you must not use UAVs (drones) on Tresco - please see below.

Those wishing to use the island for commercial photography or filming purposes should contact us to discuss your plans and how we can assist you in finding the perfect filming location on Tresco.

We welcome many filming and photography opportunities each year, but please note that the prior permission of Tresco Estate is always required for commercial filming on Tresco. This includes where you plan to sell the imagery for commercial gain, or include the imagery in stock image libraries.

Using Drones on Tresco

The use of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or drones is not permitted on Tresco without prior approval.

We have taken this decision to protect the privacy and safety of our guests, protect quiet enjoyment of the island, safeguard flights using Tresco Heliport and St Mary’s Airport, and to prevent harm to our properties, designated sites, wildlife and agricultural animals.

We may grant permission for commercial filming in certain circumstances, but prior permission must always be sought - please see the information above on requesting filming permission.

Please note: we will not grant permission for amateur drone flying or filming.
