One Birdcage Walk is a Westminster location like no other. Making it effortless, whether for filming or photography, from an interview, to a feature film.

One Birdcage Walk was built overlooking St James's Park back in 1899. When the building was built it had several state-of-the-art innovations of the time, which includes the first London electrical passenger elevator.

Our stunning spaces vary from Venetian palazzo style marble walls, to Georgian period plasterwork, wood panelled spaces with original fireplaces, and even an opulently oak-clad library. One Birdcage Walk truly provides a versatile location for any photoshoot or filming within the heart of Central London.
