London Bridge on Screen

Nothing says Christmas (and tier four) like a long list of good films to cuddle up to.

We’ve put together a list of some family favourites that have one thing in common – they all feature London Bridge! 

An ultimate rom-com – Bridget Jones Diary. Any fan of the film will know that Bridget’s quirky flat is fictionally above the Globe Tavern, a traditional corner pub on Bedale Street in Borough Market.


Everyones favourite bear is out and about in London in Paddington 2. And Hugh Grant’s villainous Phoenix Buchanan pops up at Tower Bridge on the next stage of his treasure hunt in this much loved family favourite. 


Known for performing his own stunts, we watch Tom Cruise sprint over Blackfriars with the perfect view of Tower Bridge behind him in Mission Impossible.


The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus  tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary ‘Imaginarium’, a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Find Borough Market appear when a drunk man discovers the rickety set-up is more mysterious than it appears…


The remake of the classic featuring Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, shows off the capital in all its glory. In the opening scene we see Lin Manuel Miranda cycle in with a misty Tower Bridge in the background.


In Harry Potter and the Half Bloody Prince we see the muggles working away in City Hall. The building’s appearance constitutes an anachronism. It was only built in 2002.
