This city’s cultural impact on the world is well noted, and its iconic structures such as Big Ben, the London Eye and the Tower Bridge have long defined the city’s image. Since 2010, the tallest building in London has been The Shard situated at London Bridge. The modern marvel topped out at 309.6 metres, when completed in 2012. London’s greater metropolitan area boasts the second most skyscrapers of any city in Europe. As of 2020, a total of 32 skyscrapers in London reach a roof height of at least 150 metres. A whole host of skyscrapers are being planned for the City and Canary Wharf. However, other districts of London including: Stratford, the South Bank, Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Islington as well as in places in Outer London such as Croydon have major architectural projects in development. The iconic city’s skyline is a dreamscape for shooting.
One not too well-known, but idyllic location is an ancient winding path down a slope lined with cobbles in the City. Lovat Lane, previously named Love Lane, is a narrow lane that leads to Lower Thames Street. Love Lane changed to Lovat Lane in 1939 and has retained its narrow width since before the war. The buildings face directly onto the lane where there’s a view of the tower of St Mary at Hill which, untypically for a City church, appears higher than its immediate surroundings
Known as Big Ben, Elizabeth Tower and The Houses of Parliament are among London’s most recognizable landmarks. In fact, Big Ben is the name given to the giant bell inside the clock tower with a weight of more than 13 tons. The London Eye, a revolving observation wheel, is an iconic landmark on the South Bank of the River Thames. With an overall height of 135 metres, the London Eye was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel from 1999 until 2006, when the Star of Nanchang, in China, surpassed it.
Along London’s river Thames is where you’ll find landmarks such as the Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Shakespeare’s Globe. The River Thames travels more than 210 miles through the heart of some of England’s most idyllic towns, right through to the centre of London and eventually it flows out into the North Sea. The River Thames has become a major feature of many feature films, such as James Bond: Spectre, The Long Good Friday, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Harry Potter.
