 4) Wasteland

Wasteland is exactly what is says on the tin. An unused area of land in Tower Hamlets with rust coloured gas containers as it's imposing sentinels. There is a real shabby, east end vibe here that can be monopolised for all manner of ventures, from high end fashion shoots to gritty TV drama's. Metal pipes, breeze blocks and exposed foundations help create the character of this sparse and derelict space. The site can also be used as a unit base.

3) Primary School.

Fantastic location in Islington, Primary School offers a totally empty and disused site for your use. The site comprises of a big open playground, split into tarmac football pitches, grassy knolls, herb gardens and play areas.

The main building is a classic 1960's square block concealed by mucky, faded windows. The rooftop has excellent views over local residential rooftops and the major London city skyline sites.

With plenty to offer including a variety of classrooms, stairwells, gymnasium, canteen, kitchen and a reception area, the building is in good condition and available now.

If this floats the proverbial boat, the team at Film Office are waiting to hear from you.
