Travel To Harry Potter's Hogwarts With Free British Film Locations App
Everything is turning to mobile app form these days, including one of our favorite topics: Movie Set Travel. The British Tourism Board, aka VisitBritain, is calling this type of tourism"Set-Jetting," and they've launched an app to help you follow your favorite movies around London and Scotland.
The app, downloadable from the iTunes store for free here, "allows users to discover and photograph the most iconic British film locations in cinematic history. It also shows the most famous film scenes on Google maps and allows users to search by film title."
Of course the most recent addition would be scenes from the new Sherlock Holmes movie, with locations ranging from a staricase in St. Paul's Cathedral to Tower Bridge. But the app includes oldies by goodies, like how to find the locations for Hogwart's in Harry Potter movies, and the locations of battlefields in Braveheart. The app will even let you capture photos and video and post them to Twitter and Facebook, perhaps to then later cross-reference to scenes from the movies? So now to discover where exactly we can find Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice, eh?
