Ideally situated within easy reach of London and only 8 miles south of Chichester, our magnificent sandy beach, backed by a row of picturesque beach huts, provides an ideal film location. Facing south-west it enjoys some spectacular sunshine and sunsets, but is equally appealing during stormy weather. At low tide, when a quarter of a mile of sand is exposed, a shallow lagoon of water forms across the beach, with sand banks beyond. Known as “God’s Pocket” the area also enjoys views of the Solent to the south and the picturesque South Downs to the north. The estate adjoins The National Trust’s East Head with its sand dunes and marram grass.


Many companies have used us as a location for both filming and stills shoots. There is ample parking close to the beach and toilet facilities.  We may also be able to supply overnight storage and security. We can offer support in several other ways; please call us (01243 514143) to discuss how we may help, or alternatively email with your requirements to media@westwitteringbeach.co.uk
