Set in a magnificent part of Bedfordshire, Millbrook is fast becoming the hottest location to film at.
When planning driving and/or stunt sequences, Millbrook is now my first point of call.
A lot of thoughts have been put into the design of their website with its extensive photo library.
In addition to that, the staff is always welcoming and attentive to our every need.
Their levels of professionalism and track safety are incredible, and yet they always maintain their good sense of humour and a can-do attitude that help make any shoot a pure delight.
Accommodating, helpful, professional and most importantly the safest location where to conduct all your filming
Mohamed Bounechada, Location Manager
Choosing a location to film both the driving scene and the complex car
crash in the James Bond "Casino Royale" film was made easy once we
discovered the facilities available at Millbrook Proving Ground. The
Millbrook staff were extremely accommodating on the many recce's that
took place, and they were able to offer help and advice to ensure the
actual filming went as smoothly and efficiently as possible. During the 5
nights of filming, Millbrook's experienced staff ensured our crew of over
150 people on each night could concentrate on the job in hand.
The finished scene looked amazing and the car crash gained lots of
publicity, where Bond's Aston Martin flips in mid-air and rolls over seven
times, a stunt which earned it's a place in the Guinness World Records.
I would recommend Millbrook as a filming location for any type of shoot
Robin Higgs - Location Manager - James Bond, Casino Royale
You can always get a lot done in a short space of time at Millbrook,
thanks to the wide variety of locations and road networks all on one
site. The handling circuit is well-liked by our expert road testers,
while the hill route is a favourite of our directors as it doubles
perfectly for a scenic public road without any of the usual traffic
The Millbrook personnel also make filming a pleasure - the in-house
experts have provided essential advice for our more technical features,
and nothing is too much trouble for the marshalls who chaperone our
James Woodroffe, Executive Producer, Fifth Gear, North One Television
Thank you for all your help in the filming.
Your help and professionalism made the it pleasurable and very satisfying experience. Programme making for
television can be a complicated business, especially with many elements to coordinate - the chase sequence
involving the Aston Martin and the articulated lorry would not have been possible without the proper planning
and communication that we had.
