An inspirational location for film producers, actors and authors, Bath is home to some big name productions. Vanity Fair, Persuasion, Dracula and The Duchess have attracted stars such as Reese Witherspoon, Judi Dench, Amitabh Bachchan and Kiera Knightley to Bath.
Bath's popularity as a filming location is due to its great mix of 18th century architecture with contemporary lifestyle. The unspoilt and uncluttered passageways rich in history are perfect backdrops to transport Bath back in time.
One of the latest movie scenes to be filmed in Bath is for Les Miserables (released early 2013) where Russell Crowe's character jumps into the River Avon from Grand Parade.
