    Looking for streets in Greater London that can pass for a Paris street. Not looking for famous avenues or large roads, just small streets and alleyways with a French feel.

    As well, the film will take place at night, and will be in black and white, which will certainly help match the location.

    And if you know any studios in Greater London with a Paris street in their backlot, I would love to hear from you!


    I’m afraid we don’t have anything like that on our library but we are also location finders/scouts so could scout some streets that would be suitable for a fee. There are some great alleyways and cobbled streets that would work. Please can you email if you want any more help.



    Would you like a particular period of Paris or can modern buildings be included in the search?

    Unitbase are based at Wimbledon Film and Television Studios based in South West London. The studios have an exterior street set, which has received a major face-lift from Production Designer James Hendy in the past few weeks, updating it to combine a mix of residential facades as well as modern shop fronts, but keeping the best elements – for example the fully functional “Common Inn”, which has been revamped to give it a thoroughly contemporary feel. This great set includes an alley way, a bike shed, and as mentioned above, the pub interior. There is everything from a Drycleaner’s to a Chinese Takeaway, and all of the shop fronts can be altered to suit your requirements.

    This versatile location can be used for a range of productions from music videos to TV dramas, feature films as well as TV commercials and stills photography.
