Testimonials

"The Bovingdon Airfield Studios complex has been the home of Dancing on Ice, and an ever-expanding list of premium prime-time entertainment series for more than five years; the combination of extensive exterior space, privacy, accessibility, being just outside the M25 and less than an hour from London, has made it a perfect choice for us. The location and facilities are perfect for us but the relationship we enjoy with the team is even better — flexible, decent and trustworthy people are worth their weight in gold."
