Film and TV in Liverpool

1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Water Street, Martin’s Bank, St George’s Hall and Merseyside all feature in this exciting Harry Potter spin-off starring Eddie Redmayne. Get a suitcase and perhaps a few toy monsters together for a selfie photoshoot!

 

2. Chariots of Fire

This epic tale of two British runners competing in the 1924 Olympics is a classic. The British Embassy ball where the Prince of Wales asks Liddell to run on the Sabbath takes place at the magnificent Liverpool Town Hall, and the ‘Stade des Colombes’, the Olympics venue, is really the Bebington Oval Sports Centre in Wirral. Time to get some running-man style selfies!

 

3. Sherlock Holmes & Captain America: The First Avenger

Liverpool

The historic buildings of Stanley Dock appeared in two major blockbuster movies, playing the part of Victorian London in Sherlock Holmes, while for Captain America it was dressed to look like 1940s New York City. Take a stroll and get some Sherlock Holmes selfies!

 

4. The Hunt for Red October

In this Sean Connery classic, parts of Liverpool double as Cold War Moscow, particularly the neoclassical Liverpool Town Hall. Definitely worth a visit for movie fans!

 

5. Creed

The weigh in for this iconic boxing movie took place in Liverpool’s beautiful St. George’s Hall, while you’ll see Ricky Conlan jogging through Rupert Lane Recreation Ground. See them for yourself!

 

6. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Fans of this Kennenth Branagh and Keira Knightley spy-thriller will be interested to know that some of the car chase scenes took place on Castle Street and Water Street, two of Liverpool’s most architecturally impressive streets. Take a walk around the area and get some shots of the buildings, then maybe indulge in a bit of shopping.
