One of the most popular filming locations in the world, the Old Royal Naval College has been the climactic battleground for Thor – the golden-haired God of Thunder himself – reverberated with the ominous footsteps of Meryl Streep as The Iron Lady and transformed into the manicured courtyard of Buckingham Palace for Netflix hit The Crown. If the walls of this prestigious site could talk, they’d be gushing about celebrity sightings and film set secrets for eternity. Luckily, in their silent stead, you can find out all the facts from a tour guide every Saturday and Sunday starting from September 25th.
Each tour is 60 minutes long, leading you around the architectural gem and showing you the sites where many popular television and film moments were filmed. Cinephiles will be entirely in their element; learning about the filming locations of blockbusters such as The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Sherlock Holmes. Plus, there’ll be ample opportunity to recreate your favourite scenes from a whole host of period dramas, rom coms and binge-worthy TV series.
Gazing up at the heavenly fresco of The Painted Hall is worth the price of the ticket alone, while a wander around the riverside grounds is sure to instil illusions of grandeur in even the most down-to-earth realist. If you wouldn’t mind following in the footsteps of some of Hollywood’s finest then make sure to grab tickets here.
