London Buildings in the Movies (poll)


I was reading the other day about the stunning buildings which have been shortlisted for movie-film-reelthe prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize.It might be difficult to appreciate the beauty of the landmarks if we see them often. I used to work near the Houses of Parliament, and it was the many tourists taking pictures what I actually noticed more often!

Some of London’s well-known buildings have been amongst the UK’s favourite over the years, eg, St Paul’s Cathedral, etc. It is no wonder that London is one of the most sought-after film locations. I have somehow felt great when I recognised some locations and names in some of the most popular movies – ‘I’ve been there!’ or ‘I know that place!’

As the BFI London Film Festival is round the corner, 7-8 October (where’s the year gone!), I thought it would be fun to see which are your top London buildings. I have mentioned in between brackets one of the movies they appear in.

All you need to do is choose one of the options below. Feel free to add any other buildings, even if they are not as famous, in the comments and the movie where it appears.
