Hollywood may be the world capital of filmmaking, but don’t count the United Kingdom out as a hotbed of film production activity. With its unspoiled locations and generous financial incentives, it’s easy to see why an increasing number of big-name Hollywood filmmakers are packing up and heading east—way east—to make their next great moving pictures. And they’re reawakening the UK film scene in the process, creating interest in the iconic locations of its rich and varied cinematic past, as well as the festivals and movie theaters where its future stars are being discovered. This is why you won’t want to miss out on visiting any of these UK cities if you’re a movie buff.
