A former New Cross pub has been named as one of the UK’s most popular filming locations to visit.

The list, compiled by Virgin Media O2, revealed the UK’s most visited filming locations ranging from central London to the Scottish Highlands.

Research from Virgin Media O2 revealed that 48 percent of Brits would visit a destination “simply because a film had been set there.”

On average, fans are willing to travel a huge 173 miles across the UK and Ireland to see these locations, which measures the distance between Newcastle and Liverpool.

The Duke of Albany in New Cross was ranked at number seven in the list for Brits’ favourite film locations in the UK.

Two other London locations also made the list, which included The Notting Hill Bookshop in West London at fourth place and Piccadilly Circus in central London in ninth.

The Duke of Albany in New Cross served as the backdrop for the Winchester Tavern, which appeared in the 2004 film Shaun of the Dead staring Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright.

According to WhatPub, the venue closed its doors in 2005 and has since been converted into flats following the closure.

It provided the exterior shorts for The Winchester Tavern in the film Shaun of the Dead in 2004.

Here’s the full list:

  1. Glenfinnan Viaduct, Scottish Highlands
  2. Highclere Castle, Hampshire
  3. Chatsworth House, Derbyshire
  4. The Notting Hill Bookshop, London
  5. Honeysuckle Cottage, Surrey
  6. Royal Liver Building, Pier Head, Liverpool
  7. The Duke of Albany, New Cross, London
  8. St Ann’s, Nottingham
  9. Piccadilly Circus, London
  10. Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire

Further research has revealed that movie locations generated a tourist trade of £7,020,842,928 estimated to be spent per year on travel and accommodation.

It was also found that one in four Brits admit they’d rather plan a trip to visit a film location over visiting a family member or friend, with social media playing a key role in influencing locations people choose to travel to.

David Bouchier, Chief TV and Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “With such a varied selection of movies and streaming services available on Virgin TV, our customers can find thousands of films at their fingertips.
