London is a versatile city. With the power of suggestion, camera trickery and the ‘dressing’ of locations you can be led to think you are in another part of the capital – or even another part of the world!
Film London is proud to announce the re-launch of its online locations Directory. Some of the new additions to this selection have previously featured on TV and film, but not as you’d quite expect…
Royal Society of Arts
One of the doors of this spectacular 18th Century building opens onto John Adam Street. It is frequently used as the door to Number Ten Downing Street
Goodenough College, London House
A cobbled archway in the grounds of this Grade II listed neo-Georgian mansion has been used to represent the Foreign & Commonwealth Office
Old Royal Naval College
This Georgian site has stood in for The Pentagon - headquarters of the Department of Defence in Washington
Sheraton Skyline Hotel
This 4 Star deluxe hotel based at Heathrow had its swimming pool area used to represent exotic locations such as Colombia (in ITV’s TV drama Ultimate Force) and South America (for Russell Crowe feature film Proof of Life)
The Queen's House, Greenwich
Has been mocked-up as Buckingham Palace, but this is perhaps not so surprising considering the name of this location!
Visit the Film London Directory to view all of these locations and more.
