Some movie locations are really worth visiting, which is probably why New Zealand has become a favorite tourist destination following the huge success of Lord of the Rings. With structures, such as the hobbit’s houses, still intact, a lot of visitors make it a point to visit the place.
Some places, however, have appeared in various movies too many times that they have become stars in their own right. Which places in London that played a role in films?
Kings Cross Station
Anyone who’s watched Harry Potter is sure to be familiar with the Kings Cross Station. Platform 4 and 5 had been used for filming, but the most famous spot is the Platform ¾ where people love to have their photos taken while pushing a trolley through it. There is also the Harry Potter Studio and Harry Potter shop that are worth checking out.
As a famous Victorian bridge in London, it is not a surprise that the Tower Bridge is a favorite backdrop in some of Hollywood’s biggest movies. The well-known landmark has appeared in Tomb Raider, Fast and Furious 6, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Mission Impossible, among others.
The ever-changing skyline of the South Bank is what made it a star in several movies, including Thor: The Dark World and Wimbledon. The role it plays in the film, however, only gives viewers a glimpse of what this part of London really is about. Flanked on one side by the River Thames and the location of the London Eye and Millennium Bridge, it is a place every traveler must explore.
One of the most recognizable landmarks in London, it has appeared in Captain America and the Edge of Tomorrow. It has also been featured in numerous TV shows, including in the last episode of Ugly Betty, a comedy hit series in America.
