“scholarly and entertaining... a mine of info, well illustrated, wide-ranging, affordable and hard to put down.” The Guardian
Movie London is a guide to the filming sites of over 600 films made in the capital, from the first British talkie, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1929 Blackmail, up to such recent productions as David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. And there are more than 650 original photographs of the locations as you can expect to see them.

Explore the city as you’ve never seen it before – film by film. The platforms at King’s Cross station are a must-see for Harry Potter fans; thousands of tourists flock to see the famous ‘blue door’ in Notting Hill (even though it’s now black); and The Da Vinci Code has turned Temple Church into a major attraction (but do you know where to see Silas the Monk’s ‘safe house’?).
From Love Actually to The Bourne Ultimatum, Quadrophenia to Children of Men , Bridget Jones to The Queen, the films made in London are as diverse as the capital’s locations – and this guide covers them all.

Turn your ‘staycation’ into a world tour: without leaving London, you can sink a pint of Guinness in the Irish pub of The Long Good Friday, explore the Moscow church visited by Izabella Scorupco in GoldenEye, hang out in the Berlin airport from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, see the Cuban cigar factory from Die Another Day or rub shoulders with Evita in Buenos Aires.
