Summary of the Book:
London is a magical place which has intrigued people for more than 2,000 years, and never is this more apparent than in the past 130 years following the invention of the moving image.
Do you want to follow in the footsteps of Paddington, James Bond and Dorian Gray? Do you want to kiss in front of the blue door? Or look for the tomb of the resurrected Lord Blackwood? Or do you want to know where Richard Burton lived? Or where you can actually buy jewellery which was in the movies?
If you do, then you’re in the right place.
London has been a draw for filmmakers for decades, and this book guides you through the locations, in the shadow of some of your favourite movies.
Take a tour by movie, go on a movie pub crawl, a leisurely stroll through cemeteries with connections to the movies or create your own tour by postcode. This book will allow you to visit new parts of London but with the familiarity of a well-loved film.
With more than 500 movie locations from 91 films covering more than six decades of movie making and more than 100 images, this book will have something for everyone and will show you London in a new, sparkling, glamourous light.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love movies and learning about the places they were filmed. This tells me more about the movies I love and the locations that I could visit if I was ever to go to London. That would be amazing and just to stand there in those places. I would like to see more books like this for other locations.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
