Quirky Locations for photoshoots & Filming in London & the UK

As a popular Pinterest post once stated, “be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons” and we have a big selection of quirky shoot locations that self-identify as the brightest flamingos in the business.

If you’re on the hunt for something that doesn’t fit the mould and is guaranteed to turn heads, 1st Option is proud to represent a selection of out-of-the ordinary and unique locations available to hire for filming and shoot locations. From beach huts to factories, to old asylums to chapels, an artist’s home with exhibition, a 1930’s lighthouse, a Victorian public house, historic schools and even a state of the art mansion complete with a bright pink elephant sculpture and outside seating pod, to everything in between, we’ve got it all.

We already know the world is a weird and wonderful place, but where are the most intriguing places on earth? First up we have the Spotted Lake in Canada. During the summer water in the lake evaporates and leaves behind small mineral pools making the lake look, you guessed it, spotty. If pink’s your thing, get on a flight to Aus, ASAP. Lake Hillier in Western Australia is deep pink all year round because of salt-loving algae that live beneath its waters. Undoubtedly our favourite unusual destination is Cat Island in Japan. On the island you’ll find a cat shrine, cat built cabins for you to stay in, and of course- plenty of cats.

In this section you’ll find a collection of the best of vibrant, speculator, magical and personality-filled locations. We’d love to bring out your wacky, so get in touch with one of our team who can help you navigate your way through the most unique properties London has to offer.
