We always try to support filming & photography at HS1 Ltd. owned stations. As the station’s commitment is to maintaining safe and reliable operations and offering a seamless visitor experience, we require that any professional photography or filming in our public areas are applied for via the processes below so that we can discuss your request with you.

Network Rail represents HS1 Ltd. for filming at St Pancras International, Stratford International and Ebbsfleet International and their car parks for large-scale filming project types including:

  • Commercials
  • Feature films
  • TV fiction
  • Music videos

For these projects, please follow their process on

For small-scale photography and filming at our stations, including Ashford International, for projects such as (but not limited to) stills photography, documentaries, interviews, headshots, student projects and small-scale music videos, please contact us directly by completing the below and send it to with your proof of PLI.

All applications are subject to approval by HS1 Ltd. and the station operator and you can only attend the site for the purpose once this approval has been given. Please allow 1 week minimum for approvals.

Most professional filming and photography will be considered commercial and therefore may be subject to a location fee. Non-commercial filming is managed by our Media Relations (contacts below) team and generally has to be rail-related (breaking news, railway documentaries etc).

To the extent that any third-party consents are required for the Purpose of undertaking any activities, it shall be your responsibility to obtain these consents. This would include the filming or photography of trains, retailers, statues or sculptures, staff and visitors.
