Retrace the steps of Kiera Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, and Daniel Radcliffe to see famous film locations in the city and surrounding Bath villages.
The iconic and beautiful streets of Bath have been chosen as the backdrop for many television shows and movies. Famous for cobbled streets, golden Bath stone, Georgian architecture and grand venues, Bath is a living film set waiting for the cameras to roll.
Popular locations include Jane Austen’s favourite, The Pump Room, which features in Persuasion; the Ballroom at The Assembly Rooms, which features in The Duchess, the fashionable Great Pulteney Street, which became the backdrop for Vanity Fair; The Canary Gin Bar for Sherlock; and the famous Pulteney Bridge, seen during Javert’s suicide in Les Miserables.
For a taste of Hogwarts, Harry Potter fans need to venture a short distance outside of the city to the quaint English village of Lacock. Or head down the road to nearby Castle Combe, which was used as a backdrop for War Horse.
