Regulations

Please note that every effort will be made to accommodate filming at Royal Museums Greenwich. However as our main priorities are to remain open to the public 7 days a week, 10am-5pm (10am-6pm during certain holiday periods), and to preserve and display the collections within our care, we reserve the right to decline filming projects at our absolute discretion. Closure requests during public opening hours are subject to directorate approval.

You are also required to visit the proposed site in advance of any filming/photography, and to meet with one of our Filming Officers.
