Just add Water

Classic films made even better by the River Thames

Location: Albert Embankment, SE1

Description: The River Thames is the longest river entirely in England, rising officially at Thames Head in Gloucestershire and flowing into the North Sea at the Thames Estuary, with its focal point in central London.

Some of the most exciting film-makers from around the world choose to shoot in the capital and many of them are drawn to the watery wonders of the Thames.

Classic films such as A Kid for Two Farthings and Frenzy have used river locations, as well as recent blockbusters such as The Dark Knight and Atonement.

A film trail starts at 'Albert Embankment' - accessible from Elephant & Castle, Lambeth North and Waterloo stations, then past some of the most stunning riverfront areas - right across to your end point, St Katharine Docks.

Visit the South Bank Movie Trail here - http://www.filmlondon.org.uk/content.asp?CategoryID=1128 - get down to Albert Embankment...and soak it all in.
