Looking for Bridget Jones filming locations? Look no further! Here are all the London movie locations to relive the movie all over again.
Before I moved across the pond, I’d spend all my idle time on any movie or show even mildly related to London.
So it didn’t take me long to fall in love with the story of Bridget Jones. A 32-year-old Londoner who finds herself lost in every way possible, until she decides to take control of her life (and enter a scandalous romance or two).
If you’re in London and a Bridget Jones fan, you’ll definitely want to spend a day finding all the Bridget Jones filming locations the city has to offer. Without further ado here are all the Bridget Jones filming locations in London to relive the movie over and over!
Note: These filming locations are for the first movie; Bridget Jones Diary
Bridget Jones Flat | The Globe Tavern 8 Bedale Street, Southwark SE1 9AL
Bridget’s fictional estate (and home to her infamous “All by Myself rendition) can be found at 8 Bedale Street, right above the Globe Tavern.
If the area looks extra familiar, it’s probably because this is where Hugh Grant and Colin Firth have their brawl at the end of the movie.
Take a quick snap outside the famous black door and remember to be mindful of the building’s current residents. You can also pop through Borough Market after!
David Cleaver’s Loft |Clink St, Southwark, SE1
We can’t easily forget Hugh Grant’s heartthrob character (minus the jerky bits). Well, if you want to see his abode up close, just head to Clink St.
The modern apartments are just a quick walk from Bridget Jones’s flat; so you can easily relive Bridget’s shock when she comes up to find him with another woman.
Book Release Scene|Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH,
It’d be hard to forget Bridget Jones blunder at the ICA, the location for the book launch scene of Kafka’s Motorbike (and the beginning of her romance with Daniel Cleaver).
The building itself is worth the visit, with a lovely cafe and tons of work from contemporary artists to explore.
P.S – It’s very close to Buckingham Palace so be sure to pair your visit with a walk around Central!
Bridget’s Birthday Meal | Borough Market
Tucked in London Bridge you’ll find Bridget Jones shopping spree in none other than Borough Market.
One of London’s most famous markets (and the scene where Bridget Jones walks home in her bunny outfit after she catches Daniel cheating) you can take in the movie location and have a bite while you’re at it.
Bonus: It’s right next to the Globe Tavern, so you can’t miss it!
Cantina Del Ponte | Cantina Del Ponte 36c Shad Thames, London SE1 2YE, United Kingdom
Bridget and Daniel’s first date night takes place at none other than Cantina Del Ponte, a traditional Italian Trattoria along the River Thames.
Give yourself the full movie treatment with dinner on the seaside and a view to match.
Mark and Daniel Fight Scene | 5 Bedale Street SE1 9AL
Who can resist a rom-com fight? Especially when it’s between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. Get in on the fictional action and relive the infamous brawl between Mark and Daniel’s characters at 5 Bedale Street.
Although the Greek Restaurant from the movie is closed, you can still enjoy the scene at the new wine bar.
BK News | 42-44 Bishopgate, EC2N 4AH
When Bridget starts working for the news station she pops into BK News for a smoke break after fears of being sacked for missing her interview with Eleanor Heaney and Kafir Aghani.
Luckily Mark Darcy comes to the rescue, at none other than BK News. An unassuming newsagent; you can grab a snack to fuel the rest of your movie scouting!
It’s also right across from the Royal Courts of Justice, which leads us to our next scene…
The Case at the Royal Courts of Justice | Strand, WC2A 2LL
For breathtaking architecture and one of the biggest scenes in the Bridget Jones movie, head to the Royal Courts of Justice.
The high profile case she covered in the movie isn’t too far off from real life, with scurries of journalists and photographers frequenting outside the grounds more often than not.
To get a decent picture you may want to head there on the weekends. But, if you want to see the courts up close you can visit the court during working hours on the weekdays, but no cameras.
Zebra Crossing |Strand, WC2A 2LL
A very small filming location to note, but worth a pic none the less!
In between BK News and the Royal Courts of Justice is the Zebra crossing where Bridget Jones heads to her infamous interview. Not an Abbey Road per say, but it’ll do!
The Final Kiss | Cornhill, EC3V 3PD
Bridget’s shoeless run to Mark ends with a kiss, on the corner of Cornhill to be exact. With diary in hand she finally catches up to Mark on a snowy day in London, about a mile from her flat.
The Mont Blanc shop where Mark is eventually found buying Bridget a new diary is also alive and well, so be sure to pop in for a browse after!
