Movies locations – Vignamaggio

Kenneth Branagh chose Vignamaggio, in Tuscany, as the setting for his 1993 adaptation of the theatrical comedy “Much ado about nothing”.

Vignamaggio is in the geographical and enological heart of the Chianti Classico region, half way between Florence and Siena.

The estate was already famous as the birthplace of Mona Lisa in 1479.

Movies locations – The George Inn

The George Inn in Somerset claims to be Britain’s oldest tavern.

It was built in the 14th or 15th century to accommodate travellers and merchants coming to the annual wool fairs that were held in the village from the late 13th century until 1902.

The building has been used as a setting for The remains of the day: it’s the pub where Miss Kenton and Mr. Benn meet during a rainy evening.
