Top 10 Romantic Movies to Watch in London

Top 10 Romantic Movies to Watch in London

1. Four Weddings and a Funeral

Four Weddings and a Funeral

This is one of my favorite films of mine. This film was released in 1994. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a delightfully funny and romantic movie that can be watched endlessly and still be just as brilliant a film as the first time. From the expletive-filled sequences of Hugh Grant’s protagonist Charles trying to get to weddings on time to the heart-breaking reading of “Stop all the clocks” by W.H. Auden.

Director: Mike Newell

Casts: Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Simon Callow, James Fleet, John Hannah, Charlotte Coleman, etc.

2. Notting Hill

Notting Hill

Notting Hill is the epitome of a British romantic comedy movie and has many positive aspects from the viewer’s side. Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts head an excellent cast, and the film feature some of the most swoon-worthy dialogue ever spoken on screen.

Director: Roger Michell

Casts: Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville, Rhys Ifans, etc.

3. Bridget Jones’s Diary

Bridget Jones’s Diary

Bridget Jones’s Diary is a funny look film about life and love in your decades. It is based on Helen Fielding’s book with the same title and takes some very apparent aspects from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Jones shows that you don’t have to have everything perfect by stumbling through the issue after the incident and encouraging every female viewer. Even in the flawed mess of life, magic may occasionally occur.

Director: Sharon Maguire

Casts: Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, and Gemma Jones.

4. Pride & Prejudice

Pride & Prejudice

Numerous films have been made based on Jane Austen’s most well-known novel, but perhaps the most remarkable is Joe Wright’s 2005 version with Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen. Knightly is considered the “queen of British period dramas”. To enhance the developing relationship between the feisty Lizzie Bennet and the clumsy Mr.Darcy, the movie makes use of some of the best examples of English architecture, including Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

Director: Joe Wright

Casts: Keira Knightley, Brenda Blethyn, Judi Dench, Tom Hollander, etc.

5. About Time

About Time

Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Nighy, and Rachel McAdams feature in Richard Curtis’ beautiful time-travel romance. The story tells Tim, played by actor Brendan Gleeson, as he learns that the males in his family have the ability to go back in time and experience past events. Hilarity occurs as he decides to utilize this skill to further his romantic life, and things get a bit messy!

It’s comprehensible why so many of the movie’s scenes were filmed in Cornwall since these settings provide a special beauty that only this cherished country could.

Director: Richard Curtis

Casts: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, and Bill Nighy.

6. The Theory Of Everything

The Theory Of Everything

Be prepared to cry when you see this breathtaking film, which is based on Jane Wilde, Hawking’s first wife, memoir Traveling to Infinity: My Journey with Stephen. Hawking commented that there were times when he felt as though he was seeing himself on TV, and both Felicity Jones and the chameleonic Eddie garnered high appreciation for their performances.

The majority of the movie was shot on location in Cambridge, with a few sequences also being recorded in Camber Sands in East Sussex and Hampton Court Palace.

Director: James Marsh

Casts: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Emily Watson, David Thewlis, etc.

7. Far From The Madding Crowd

Far From The Madding Crowd

This movie, produced by Oscar-winning Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg, is based on Thomas Hardy’s mystical agricultural novel of the same name. The expansive vistas, picturesque villages, and deep woodland of Dorset contribute to the story’s richness and help to bring Hardy’s Wessex to life. The Jurassic Coast, several Sherbourne residences, Forde Abbey House, and Gardens.

The stunning 17th-century Mapperton House becomes one of the most crucial locations in the entire movie.

Director: Thomas Vinterberg

Casts: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, and Juno Temple.

8. Yesterday

Yesterday

In Danny Boyle’s 2019 comedy film, a struggling musician from Suffolk has a rare accident and ends up being the only individual on earth who remember The Beatles. Yesterday is a love tale, and it was a very nice one. Its plot plays out like a riff on different universes and being grateful for what you have. A unique opportunity for many Suffolk residents to work as extras on the shoot adds to the appeal of this endearing comedy.

Director: Danny Boyle

Casts: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Joel Fry, Ed Sheeran, and Kate McKinnon.

9. Ammonite

Ammonite

The paleontologist and fossil hunter Mary Anning is the subject of the novel Ammonite, which also explores a potential romance between Charlotte Murchison and her. Mary spent most of her life at Lyme Regis, Dorset, so the movie’s shooting followed suit. The staff at the Lyme Regis Museum was also on hand to provide guidance and even show Kate Winslet, who played the fossil collector, how to properly crack apart rocks to uncover specimens.

Director: Francis Lee

Casts: Kate Winslet, Saorise Ronan, Gemma Jones, James McArdle, Alec Secareanu, etc.

10. Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

This is one of the best romantic film to watch in London. It takes some skill to adapt a work like the expansive Russian epic Anna Karenina, but director Joe Wright brings this well-known but sad love story to a whole new level by filming it on a stage. This unusual approach to structuring the tale truly jumps out. It may be intended to serve as a symbol for the artifices of the upper crust and to indicate that Anna is a lady who has no true agency.

Director: Joe Wright

Casts: Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, etc.
