Discover #OMGB moments: Film & TV
There’s a reason for the sense of déjà vu that strikes as you explore Britain. Chances are you really have seen it before, on the big screen! Places you might know better as Diagon Alley, Winterfell Castle and the eerily familiar grave of Thomas Riddell Esq actually do exist. And dramatic scenery from films such as the Bond films and Macbeth has less to do with CGI than you’d probably expect. Seek out these parts of Britain that have featured in the limelight and next time you’re watching a film with your friends, you might just find yourself saying, “I’ve been there!”
