Film and Television companies go to extraordinary lengths to find locations for their productions to create authenticity.
England provides such a wealth of historical and cultural diversity, both in its towns and in the countryside, that it has become one of the major centres for location work in the world. Of course so much can now be created in the studio but there is no substitute for the real thing if it is available as an existing set. From a London church interior for Four Weddings and a Funeral to an entire Cotswold village in Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince; from the empty streets of London in 28 Days Later to the ‘stand in’ Buckingham Palace in The Kings Speech, Robinson Tours will recreate the relevant scenes for you at these locations.
We offer several film and television location visits depending on your interests. We can conduct a general tour in London visiting the key locations for films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, The King’s Speech and many others including the Harry Potter series. We can also tailor make a tour to suit your own interests – perhaps you are a James Bond fan. Let us know your favourites and we will custom make a tour especially for you.
Many of the UK’s television series are being broadcast around the world and are firm favourites, the most recent notables being Doc Martin, The Tudors and Downton Abbey. Your Blue Badge Guide will escort you on a tour to visit these locations and others related to the series.
