The Dark Knight Location Travel Guide | International Finance Centre, Hong Kong
International Finance Centre, Hong Kong

Where is it? On the waterfront of Hong Kong’s Central District. But not in a Marlon Brando way.

What is it? It’s a huge complex of corporation and bank headquarters, a shopping mall and the Hong Kong Four Seasons. Tower 2, commonly known as IFC 2, was the tallest building in Hong Kong at the time of filming (the International Commerce Centre surpassed it in 2010) and is handy for the airport express, so that’s nice.

What did it play onscreen? In the film, Batman posed atop the IFC 2 before leaping from it to get to IFC 1, wherein he fought a whole heap of bad guys to get to his target and retrieve him for return to Gotham.

Can I visit it? Well, you can certainly visit the mall, or the Four Seasons, and on the 55th floor of IFC 2 there’s currently an exhibit of Hong Kong's monetary history, open to the public during office hours. But they won’t let you jump off the top unless you’re either Batman or Lara Croft.

1 You can actually go to Nottingham's Wollaton Hall...
Thanks narf17 - I was a bit bugged that the Wayne Manor you can actually visit was given a throwaway sentence. For a travel guide it's handy to be able to go there!! www.wollatonhall.org.uk I love Wollaton Park, a beautiful hall, majestic deer across the park and a lovely lake walk - my family and I always go when people come to stay with us. Entry is free and you only pay a couple of quid to park. More

Nice to see a mention of Wollaton Hall in the copy. You can visit it every day of the year for free, unlike the place in Bucks. More

Spent a lot of time at Wollaton Park when I was at uni. Remember reading the Inception Issue of Empire and Christopher Nolan's big plans for the The Dark Knight follow up just in front of Wollaton Manor. If I had known it was being used as a location... More

8 RE: Where's...
And what about Wollaton Hall in Nottingham used for the external shots of Wayne Manor???????   Bloody production crew even knocked down a wall while filming it because the truck didn't fit through the gap! More

9 Where's...
Glasgow? I heard a rumour that Nolan filmed some in Glasgow as he loved the old architecture of the city and it reminded him of what he thinks Gotham would be like. More
