Library Reference Numbers Explained

Here at UKFilmLocation.com our team of location managers like to make things as easy as possible! To help us all quickly determine whether a location is in the right general area we created a library structure that enables us to quickly identify where locations are within the UK, and if outside the UK, which country they are located in. For the UK, the database references are: LON - Inside M25 SE - Counties around the M25 (excludes Cambridgeshire which is technically in East Anglia!) EA - East Anglia Midlands is split - WM (West Midlands) and EM (East Midlands) North of England is split - NW (North West) and NE (North East) - from Yorkshire up to Scottish border. There are some "N's". These are usually in the north west and are historic records S is for Scotland W is for Wales NI - Northern Ireland Type the name of the country into our Search box to see our overseas options. We currently have locations in: Spain; Italy; France; Greece; Czech Republic; USA, Uganda; South Africa; Bahamas, Croatia etc. For international searches is best to drop us a line and we'll send out options to you.
