Film & Photo Shoots

Located in the centre of picturesque Rye and just four miles from Camber Sands, The George is the ideal base for film or photo shoots.

Steeped in history, with cobbled streets, Tudor architecture and charming little alleyways, Rye has provided the backdrop to numerous films, TV productions, commercials and photo shoots. Camber Sands is also popular with its glorious expanse of white sandy beach and sand dune system.

Other locations in the vicinity include Dungeness and the surrounding Romney Marsh, Bodiam Castle, the fishing town of Hastings, the Grade 1 listed De la Warr Pavilion at Bexhill and the historic town of Battle with its imposing Abbey.

Please see the Rother District Council web page to apply for a filming permit. Alternatively, our events team would be happy to provide more information.

After a fire on 20th July, we have had to temporarily close The George hotel and restaurant. We are working hard to make the necessary repairs, and will reopen as soon as we possibly can. For more information and updates on our refurbishment, please give us a follow on Facebook or Instagram, or sign up to our newsletter. We thank you for your support, Alex, Katie and The George team.
