London is the world’s most-visited city as measured by international arrivals. The most recent research shows that films depicting the UK are responsible for attracting one in 10 overseas tourists, generating approximately £2.1bn annually for the country’s economy.
Film London supports the capital's tourist industry by building maps of popular locations and through research into screen tourism — aimed at helping us better capitalise on this booming industry.
Film location maps
From Skyfall to The Dark Knight and Love Actually, Film London’s online movie map showcases iconic London film locations and the city’s cinematic credentials.
Researching screen tourism
Film London works with partners across Europe to deliver EuroScreen. Funded by the EU’s European Regional Development Fund through the INTERREG IVC programme, the project aims to maximise economic synergies between screen and tourism industries to improve innovation, competitiveness and growth in film tourism across eight regions in the EU.
After publishing a baseline study ‘The Attraction of Screen Destinations’ and a series of case studies in 2013, the project is commissioning research to measure the impact of screen tourism on city and regional brands.
