London, United Kingdom
If you're a particularly observant film buff you'll know the answer is the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich in South-East London. Greenwich guide Neil Sinclair will give you not 15 minutes of fame but 90 minutes on a fascinating walk linking blockbuster films like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Pirates of the Caribbean and Sherlock Holmes with the baroque splendour of the Old Royal Naval College.
The Old Royal Naval College was designed over 300 years ago as the Royal Greenwich Hospital, a home for retired seafarers. There was nothing retiring, however, about Johnny Depp's portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow escaping through a window of St James's Palace in Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides. But St James's Palace was made of plywood and built on one corner of the Old Royal Naval College. Discover the exact location of this Hollywood secret plus many more on this highly revealing Footprints tour.
Meet outside the Cutty Sark for Maritime Greewich DLR station entrance which is next door to the Gate Clock Pub in Creek Road.
