The Pier as a Great Filming Location

The perfect location…

For filming locations by the sea, Clacton Pier in Essex takes centre stage as an iconic and adaptable backdrop for your project, whatever the budget. At Clacton Pier we have welcomed film crews for a number of years and have featured in high-profile TV shows, including Eastenders in 2011 and our Helter Skelter featured in the 2008/9 Marks and Spencer TV advertisement. It is an icon of the British seaside where families and friends come to let their hair down and enjoy the many exciting and delightful things the Pier has to offer. From the white-knuckle excitement of the various rides to the pristine calm of a beautiful seascape, Clacton Pier offers a multitude of themes and settings, both indoor and out.
