You Need to Visit These Iconic Film Locations in London!
#1 Kings Cross station
Maybe the most iconic movie spot in London, famous “Platform 9 ¾” on King Cross station. This station became the world’s most famous railway destination when it appeared in the Harry Potter novels. On the famous Platform “9 ¾” on London’s King Cross you can actually find that Harry Potter trolley (even pretend you are pushing them and take a picture) and a shop full of Harry Potter related things (we recommend you to buy special edition bonbons Jelly Belly Harry Potter, you will have fun with trying out flavors like Black Pepper, Booger, Dirt and Grass).
#2 10 Downing Street
The most famous Christmas movie Love Actually is getting you the closest shot you will ever get to take a peek inside of the Prime Minister’s Office in London on the 10 Dowing Street. Openhouselondon.org.uk does offer the chance to win access one day a year through ballot, otherwise you’ll need to become PM to go inside.
#3 Portobello Road Market
This colorful and busy street on Nothing Hill is famous for its market (here you can find antiques, food, clothes, flowers, souvenirs…). In this street and this neighborhood was filmed Nothing Hill, a romantic comedy with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant playing the main characters.
#4 Millennium Bridge
If you are a Harry Potter fan you probably remember the scene when Dementors destroyed the Millennium Bridge in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie. Bridge is still on the same place and it’s intact in real life. If you want to have a nice view over the bridge and City of London climb up to the restaurant in Tate Modern, grab coffee & cake and enjoy the view.
#5 Borough Market
In the Bridgit Jones series of movies you will see many London attractions and landmarks, but the most interesting for film fans is her apartment in Borough. Bridget Jones’ flat is located above The Globe pub on Bedale Street, just around the corner from Borough Market (very delicious street food market, don’t miss it when next time in London). Fun Fact: Today’s worth of this one-bedroom flat is £650,000.
