Screen Suffolk - Filming on The Suffolk Coast

Screen Suffolk offers a ‘one-stop’ film service, from initial enquiry through to crew sourcing and permitting. 

Award-winning director Sir Ridley Scott once said that "choosing location is integral to the film: in essence, another character", so it's no surprise that The Suffolk Coast with all its beauty and distinctive qualities, has been a place to call home for plenty of big screen adventures. It has been the setting for a whole host of promotional activity both featured in print and digital formats.

You may have seen many film locations on The Suffolk Coast. The popular BBC4 comedy show the 'Detectorists' was filmed around the pretty town of Framlingham and ‘Yesterday’ the film directed by Danny Boyle with a screenplay by Richard Curtis was filmed throughout the Suffolk with Halesworth, Shingle St, Ramsholt, Dunwich and even Latitude Festival making an appearance.  

More recently the Netflix film 'The Dig' that was based on events taking place in 1939 at Sutton Hoo was featured extensively with locations such as Snape, Butley Ferry and Boyton Marshes being used for filming.  Somerleyton Hall near Lowestoft was transformed into Sandringham in series four of The Crown and Lowestoft beach featured in a recent campaign advert for Burberry.

Screen Suffolk is the County’s Film Office and their aim is to make Suffolk the most film-friendly county in the UK. They promote the area’s service infrastructure, creative talent and fantastic locations. They support from the initial enquiry through to crew sourcing, accommodation and permitting.
