Press & Filming

From hidden rooms and echoing tunnels to expansive views of the South Downs and Sussex Coast, Newhaven Fort offers a diverse range of filming options. We have magnificent Victorian Architecture, gun emplacements, early 20th century guns and those ever popular ‘spooky’ tunnels.

The Fort is less than 2 hours’ drive from Central London and within easy reach of Brighton and Eastbourne. There is parking on site, along with a Tea Room and we may be able to cater for your cast and crew too – just give us a call to discuss your requirements.

There is access to power in a number of the tunnels and on the Parade Ground, although not all areas of the Fort are served by electricity.

The Fort has featured in various TV programmes, documentaries and adverts has been used as a location for several features. Previous filming clients include;
