The Dark Knight Rises – Nottingham

Nottingham maybe the home of another fictional hero, but in 2012, Christopher Nolan used the famous Wollaton Hall as the Wayne Manor (Batman). In previous episodes of his trilogy, only exteriors of the building were used, but in 2012 also the interior was used for filming.

Wollaton Hall is open for visitors, since it is one of the most famous buidlings of Nottingham and also a museum. It has a large park surrounding it so also very nice for a short walk.

More Batman locations here, and a lot can be found in the London Map (maked by a Bat)

Doctor Who – National Museum of Wales

National Museum Wales

 

The National Museum of Wales is a popular location for the Doctor Who team for filming. It has been used for such episodes as “Dalek” (2004) , “Planet of the Dead” (2009), “Vincent and the Doctor” (2009), “The Big Bang” (2010)  and “The Lazarus Experiment”. This means that so far the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor have been here…. waiting for you Peter….

Sarah Jane Smith has also been here for “Mona Lisa’s Revenge”, where the Mona Lisa comes to life and turns people into paintings and vice-versa. Mona Lisa is played by Suranne Jones, who also plays Idris -the Tardis- in Doctor Who.

Look at the bottom two pictures. The ‘squid’ can be seen in a shot and the entrance (door on the left) can be seen in Torchwood. The statue with the Medusa head on top of the stairs is visible in many episodes of Doctor Who (and Sarah Jane and Torchwood).
