Welcome Back Boo,
I hope you’re having a relaxed weekend!
A visit to London usually involves seeing a lot of the tourist sites like the Houses of Parliament or Big Ben or heading out to some of the smaller boroughs that have become havens for hip bars and restaurants. It’s a big place and there’s so much to do, but it can still get a little boring if you’ve been loads of times before. Next time you head back, you need a new way to see the city. If you’re a movie buff, why not take a trip around some of the sights from the most iconic movies in the world? Here’s your guide to a Hollywood tour of London.
Notting Hill with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts is one of the most quintessentially British films out there, with so many memorable scenes all set in the area of London that the film is named for. Head over to https://www.londonservicedapartments.co.uk/serviced-apartments/ for some great, reasonably priced apartments in the area. You can spend some time at the markets down Portobello Road that were the setting for some of the most famous scenes in the movie. The whole street is filled with brightly coloured rainbow houses which make for quite a sight. Once you’ve had your fix of movie locations you can visit one of the great museums and public gardens in the area or visit some of the traditional pubs.
Bridget Jones Diary
Bridget Jones Diary is another classic rom-com that has its place in British cinema history. It’s filmed in all sorts of places around London but Borough Market and Tower Bridge show up a lot. You’ve probably visited Tower Bridge before but if you haven’t been to Borough Market, it’s definitely worth a trip. This great indoor market has so many different stalls with great food ingredients from all around the world, and they all offer free samples so even if you’re not buying, you can spend a good few hours wandering around and tasting some delicious food. There are some great restaurants and street food stalls as well, but they can get a little pricey. You can easily spend upwards of £10 on some fish and chips which aren’t anything special. The market is open from 10-5 every day apart from Sunday.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ll be in your element in London. The Cursed Child theatre show is still showing but it’s difficult to get tickets (I bought mine a year and a half in advance and the seats weren’t great). You can also go on a tour of the Warner Brothers Studio and learn all about the making of the films. Visit https://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk/home to get tickets. The city itself is filled with loads of great locations that appear in the films as well, most notably the Millenium Bridge and, of course, Kings Cross Stations where you can get a photo under the platform 9 and ¾ sign and visit the Harry Potter shop. Just be prepared to wait in a long queue to get in.
Next time you visit London, take a tour of the best sights from all of your favourite movies!
Remember to keep on slaying,
See you next time xoxo
