If ever you feel a little deflated around this time of year, all you need do to lift your spirits is pop on a Christmassy film.
Here are our favourite spots you should pay a visit to inspired by the best seasonal movies.
1. Grosvenor Chapel from Love Actually
Remember the beginning of the film when Keira Knightly and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s characters got married in a cute church to the sound of All You Need Is Love? That scene was filmed in Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair, London.
2. The Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center in Home Alone 2
Home Alone 2 sees Kevin separated from his family at Christmas time again, but this time he’s wound up on his own in New York.
His mum eventually tracks him down remembering his love of Christmas trees and finds him gazing at the huge Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center.
Pay it a visit and take in the magic for yourself.
3. Empire State Building in Elf
Buddy the elf ended up in New York after travelling past the seven levels of the candy cane forest, past the sea of twirly-swirly gumdrops and then walking through the Lincoln Tunnel and eventually arriving at the Empire State Building on his quest to search for his real dad.
Go up to the top and take in the view of a New York at Christmas time.
Maybe just don’t press every single button on the lift like Buddy did.
4. Shere, Surrey from The Holiday
After a break-up, workaholic film producer Amanda (played by Cameron Diaz) swaps her LA mansion for the quaint village of Shere in Surrey instead.
Spend an afternoon in the Surrey hills exploring the shops, pubs and cafes this village has to offer.
5. Coventry Cathedral from Nativity!
In 2009, Coventry Cathedral became the host for a fictional primary school nativity play in the Martin Freeman film Nativity!
Pay a visit to the Cathedral’s ruins and make it sparkle and shine.
6. Macy’s in New York from Miracle On 34th Street
It’s got to be worth a visit to New York to see if Macy’s Santa Claus really is the real deal.
7. Mall of America from Jingle All The Way
Jingle All The Way sees two dads trying to hunt down a must-have, sell-out toy on Christmas Eve.
If you pay a visit to Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, where the movie was filmed and set, you’ll be sure to find everything you could possibly need to give this Christmas – after all, it is the country’s biggest shopping centre.
8. Peles Castle in Romania from The Christmas Prince
While the country has been excited with news of our own latest royal engagement, this Netflix film follows a journalist looking to find out what happened to Prince Richard of fictional Aldovia.
Romania provided the backdrop for the imaginary country and Peles Castle, in the Carpathian Mountains two hours north of Bucharest, stood in for the palace belonging to the Aldovian royals.
Explore it for yourself and create your own royal fantasy.
