Go Iconic with destinations that have featured on the silver screen

22 December 2020

With our ability to travel reduced this year, many of us have turned to the silver screen to get our fix of adventure and to explore lands further afield. Why not let that inspire your next getaway, by choosing an iconic destination from your favourite film, and let yourself fall in love all over again?

Whether you're a Harry Potter enthusiast, or prefer the thrills of a Bond film, immerse yourself in your very own sequel and let fiction and your Travel Resolution become reality.

If you're a fan of the Bond franchise, then you really do have the world at your fingertips when it comes to selecting a location from the film. Venice is a great choice - Casino Royale, Moonraker and From Russia With Love all saw the Italian city make a cameo appearance. From the 17th century Palazzo Pisani Moretta, to St Mark's Square and the Grand Canal, embrace your inner Bond as you unveil the charming waterways and stunning architecture. The 45ft yacht from Casino Royale, however, is optional.

All aboard the Hogwarts Express! Or the Jacobite Express as it's known to us mere muggles. Set on the West Highland line is Scotland, the Jacobite Express allows fans of the Harry Potter saga to journey on the actual train used in the iconic franchise. Cross the breathtaking Glenfinnan Viaduct and marvel at the stunning landscapes as you sweep through the Scottish Highlands - it truly is a magical experience, wizards or not.

And with all our European tours departing from St Pancras International, there's even opportunity to pop across the road to King's Cross Station for your picture on platform 9¾. Please note, running into brick walls is not advised.
