Watching and immersing yourself in a good film is one of life’s many pleasures. Favourite films can be enjoyed time and time again but sometimes you are still left feeling like you need more. If you love movies and are itching for a way to learn more about them, one way is to go on a movie location tour. You will get to walk in the footsteps of the actors themselves, (sometimes meet them) and see up close and personal the locations used in the films. Dedicated movie tour location companies will find out how the film was made and learn lots of behind the scene information that isn’t in the public domain. These anecdotes and little known facts about the actors and how the films were made are what make a good movie location tour.
The popularity of British film and TV is booming all around the world. There has never been more interest in British TV and movies. Location tours are also booming and offer benefits all round. For fans they offer a great day with likeminded people, and a way to learn about the making of the film and unusual anecdotes. The towns where the tours are located are given a boost in tourism. But also they can help to keep historic buildings afloat. For example, thanks to Julian fellows and his huge hit Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle has managed to pay for much needed repairs since they opened their doors to the public.
