Downtown Los Angeles
If you've ever wanted to visit the film locations of your favourite movie, or you've simply wondered ‘Where did they film that?’, you’ll find all the info you need here – along with plenty of original location photographs and trivia.
* In these difficult times, it's important to restrict non-essential travel so, stay safe.
In the meantime, feel free to travel the world online and to look forward to better times when we can once again move freely.
We’ve tried to keep the format simple and easy-to-use – you can choose to navigate the site by film title, by browsing the name of your favourite actor or director, by country (or US state, UK county or sometimes by city).
If you’re planning a location trip and you want to find a hotel, click here to compare prices – just enter your destination and travel dates, and let the search engine find the best deal for you.
Plan your visit in advance, give yourself plenty of time to cover all the filming locations you want to see and remember to check that any businesses and attractions are still in operation. Be aware of opening days and hours, and of local holidays.
Now get ready to travel – at least, in your imagination:
