Top 5 Film Locations: December

December has been a busy month in the filming world with a plethora of exciting projects shot in and around Tower Hamlets, Islington and Lambeth. The East End has been home to Jude Law's latest gangster venture, Dom Hemingway. Taking us back in time, Murder On The Home Front, based on the memoirs of Molly Lefebure has been shot in Lambeth and Islington has played host to the production of the feature film Molly Moon

With this in mind here are Film Office's top 5 locations for December:

Straight in at number five: The Exchange Office - Islington

This versatile location will suit a variety of production needs and really is a blank canvas waiting to be used. A simple reception area, large office space (with desks) and a variety of meeting and storage rooms are all available, along with a computer room and kitchenette.

White wash walls, colourful ceiling pipes and ceiling-to-floor French windows complete the decor.
