Trying Out Another Daily Deal

There was a 50% off Brit Movie Tours on kgbdeals so I gave it a shot. I figured why not see where movies were shot and explore London even more than we already do.

We started at the Temple tube station and across the river you can see the building from Last Chance Harvey where Emma Thompson takes her classes. Sorry I didn’t get a pic.

Next stop was Somerset House where a million movies were filmed such as The Duchess and Sherlock Holmes.

This is Stand Station which isn’t a working tube station anymore.  It’s mostly used for shooting films such as Atonement.

Harry Potter was filmed inside the Australia House.  It was closed so we couldn’t go in but it’s Gringotts Bank.

Next stop is an all time favorite movie of mine and I’m sure you guys love it also….Bridge Jones!

It’s actually the Royal Courts of Justice. Then she runs into a bodega to get ciggs….

A couple other highlights from the tour:

Do you recognize this scene?  It’s from the Da Vinci Code at Temple Church in London.

Jude Law’s apartment from Closer.  If you watch the movie again you will notice the 4 bricks to the right of the apartment door.

Overall the tour was cute.  We walked for 3 hours and saw a lot of different areas of London that we hadn’t gone to before.  The tour guide was also great because she gave us some history of the buildings along the way.  They offer a lot of different tours so check out their website.
