Bristol Film Locations

In celebration of Bristol being a UNESCO City of Film, we look at ‘Bristol: the movie star’ in this tour. Many film productions have beamed Bristol onto the big screen and as well as being a featured location, the city has often played film double and production base for many movies. This tour rounds up Bristol locations used in major titles (the city has also been used as a location for tons of famous TV productions too, but that’s another tour…).
