Mon, 31 Jan 2011 13:00:06 +0000 With awards season in full swing, and The King’s Speech picking up an award or a nomination on what seems like a daily basis, we started thinking about other movies filmed in London.

We asked our Facebook followers which London film locations they’ve visited.

Harry Potter film locations such as King’s Cross Station (Platform 9 3/4) and Charing Cross Road (the Leaky Cauldron pub) were popular, as well as sites from romantic comedies Notting Hill (the Travel Bookshop) and Bridget Jones’s Diary (Borough Market).

We also found out that The May Fair hotel features in Matt Damon’s new film, Hereafter – catch it in cinemas now.

Visit London Asks: What’s Your Favourite Bookshop in London? Mon, 01 Mar 2010 11:28:59 +0000

It’s World Book Day on Thursday, so our thoughts are turning to books and reading this week.

London’s got a fantastic offering of bookshops, from shiny big chain stores like Waterstone’s and Blackwell’s to quirky little independent shops , like My Back Pages and The Riverside Bookshop as well as specialist bookshops (Notting Hill’s Travel Bookshop, for example) catering for pretty much every taste, and eco-friendly second-hand bookshops such as the Oxfam Bookshops.

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 10 Independent Bookshops for inspiration!
