Pinewood and Shepperton are the biggest in Europe in terms of sound stages. Twickenham London film studios being the oldest purpose made studios (100 years) closed last year. Business is brisk but for how long? Disney is slowly building up their studio space by buying up un-used studios for pennies. There is a war on here between the studios so there are plenty of incentives for film makers. Good weather is not important any more as the new 'state of art' studios have plenty of green screens built in the walls!
