Over the years we have created several tours that have been of interest to those interested in the incredible British locations that have been chosen by worldwide film directors. With each new blockbuster we create new bespoke itineraries. Recent successes include locations to do with the life and various film and TV adaptations of the works of classic writers such as Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, The Bronte Family, Agatha Christie and Charles Dickens.The itinerary below is, like all of the itineraries on this website just a sample of what we have operated and is intended to show the breadth of what is possible.




Day 1 – London

Arrive in London and meet with your specialist tour guide at the airport before enjoying a panoramic coach tour of the iconic sights of London, many recognisable from featuring in various films, on the way to the hotel and check-in. Relax and join fellow tour guests this evening for an informal "get to know you" cheese and wine reception. Overnight London


Day 2 – London

Spoilt for choice of film and TV show locations, spend the morning in London visiting one of the favourites. Batman (1989) was partly filmed in Acton and in Greenwich, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Sense and Sensibility were filmed.  Alternatively visit Hampstead Heath the setting for The Omen (1976) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975). In the afternoon travel to West London and visit the home of the BBC, Shepherds Bush, for an exciting and informative 2 hour tour. End the day with dinner in Fleet Street. Overnight London


Days 3 & 4 – Cambridge

Leave London today for Cambridge which is home to the famous Footlights Review that has given us comedy giants like Peter Cook, Stephen Fry, David Mitchell and the Monty Python team. Join at leisure in the celebrations of the Cambridge Film Festival and enjoy a series of exciting and innovative outdoor screenings that take place all over the city, including along the banks of the River Cam. Whilst in Cambridge visit the University of Cambridge (made up of 31 colleges), Kings College is always a favourite and many will know Trinity College as the setting of Chariots of Fire. Overnight Cambridge


Day 5 – Oxford & Banbury

Cross country today and drive past Mentmore Towers near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, the home of Batman in Batman Begins.
