As the world stays indoors for a while, Sofa Travels is here to bring the world to you! This time, we’re focusing on the best movies set in London.

It’s no secret that I live and breath travel. Whether it’s a UK mini break, a flight across the pond or a trip to the nearest Australian brunch place in London, I try to experience as many of the little pockets of the planet as I possibly can. This blog is focused entirely on bucket lists and food for a reason!

It comes with a checklist too (and will hopefully also inspire a little summer holiday when all of this is over). We’re starting with iconic movies set in New York. Use the hashtag #SofaTravels to let us know you’re joining the movement, or to just simply share other movies to watch.

Here are the best movies set in New York City in chronological order.
