London is an incredibly popular film location. In this 2.5 hour walking tour we will explore the places where some of the most iconic British films and TV series were filmed including; James Bond, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who, Mary Poppins and Rom-Coms starring the likes of Hugh Grant and Rene Zellweger. We will learn about the locations themselves and then see how directors were able to use the locations to create historical, modern and fictional film and TV locations. We will enjoy back stage gossip, discuss why particular locations were chosen and recreate iconic film scenes ourselves!
Note: please bring an Oyster card or travelcard with you as we shall be taking a couple of bus journeys during the tour.
Our tour will be led by Caroline Piper (a member of CamSocLon!).
