London on Film Movie Map
Date posted: 11.12.2006
A new movie map of the capital, another Film London and Visit London collaboration, has been launched today.
London has inspired many truly memorable movies and for more than a century has welcomed world-class film-makers to tell their stories here.
One of the most recognisable and widely used film locations in the world, the city itself, has been the star of many great films. The map highlights locations from over 50 London-shot films from Sabotage (1936) to Stormbreaker (2006).
We’ve highlighted key central London spots featured on the big screen as well as locations further off the beaten track, including:
- The Newman Arms – Peeping Tom (1960)
- Senate House, University of London – Batman Begins (2005)
- The Hackney Empire – Chaplin (1992)
- St Paul’s Cathedral – Great Expectations (1946)
- Wilton’s Music Hall – Interview with the Vampire (1994)
Maps are now available in tourist information centres around the UK and overseas, Cineworld cinemas and hundreds of restaurants, bars, cafes and cinemas in London’s West End.
This is the seventh in a series of movie maps which are designed to encourage tourists, Londoners and film-lovers alike to discover the capital through films shot in the city.
