London Film Academy is housed in a locally listed building that was originally a church. LFA is based in Fulham, a buzzing area in South West London, enclosing artisanal restaurants, bars, cinemas and green spaces with attractions such as Stamford Bridge, the football ground of Chelsea, Market Halls, Eel Brook Common & the recently developed Picturehouse Fulham Road.
Our cinema boasts a Sony 4K digital projector and Cambridge Audio 7.1 Surround Sound with Subwoofer. Our graduation screenings take place here, as well as regular film screenings and masterclasses.
Two rehearsal and filming studios with stage sets and a selection of props are situated at the top and basement levels of the premises, and are used for all workshops and exercises.

LFA has breakout spaces for our students to spend their downtime in between and after lessons including:
- Student Room – a lounge space with access to Netfilx and other streaming services, as well as a Blu-Ray player to use for classic & modern films.
- Cantina – a dining space that’s open to all students to eat and grab a snack, some fruit and get settled in.
