Is This The Most Popular Filming Location In The World? | And The Rest...
And The Rest...

Greenwich also played palace and parliamentary exteriors in The King's Speech and The Iron Lady; it doubled for 18th century Manhattan at the end of Sleepy Hollow; hosted the second wedding in Four Weddings And A Funeral and was the scene for a lecture by Jack Ryan in Patriot Games.

And we haven't even mentioned Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Sense And Sensibility, Shanghai Knights, The Young Victoria, Dorian Gray, Revolver, The Mummy Returns, Vanity Fair, Quills, Amazing Grace, The Four Feathers, Charlotte Gray, The Bounty, The Oxford Murders, Stage Beauty, The Madness Of King George, Garfield 2, The Wings Of The Dove, King Ralph, Anne Of The Thousand Days and more, all the way back to Stanley Donen's Indiscreet in 1958, with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.
