We’ve made it to San Francisco! After taking you to New York, London and most recently to Los Angeles, it was only natural for me to keep the Sofa Travels series in the sunshine state. Admittedly, our three-week long road trip around California was one of the best travel adventures I’ve ever had in my life. And yes, I very much look forward to go to again. My excuse this time is checking out some places that were used as filming locations for movies set in San Francisco.
As you may have guessed, this post explores all the best movies set in San Francisco (in my humble opinion), in chronological order. From drama to mystery and comedy, I have picked the films that I think you should absolutely add to your cinephile bucket list. Remember to use the hashtag #SofaTravels to let us know you’re joining the movement, or to just simply share other movies to watch. Have fun!
A lot has changed recently, including our travel plans. Summer is just around the corner and the weather has been lovely recently, so it’s only natural to dream about a change of scenery. In my case, I’ve been reminiscing about the glorious sunny days we spent in California last September. Sunny blue skies, loads of Vitamin D and fresh salty water. I can assure you this is my idea of heaven.
With that idea in mind, might I suggest we focus this Sofa Travels post solely on the best films set in Los Angeles? Yes! I can’t think of a better moment to bring the Sunshine State straight into your living rooms (or your garden, a homemade open air cinema sounds ideal right now!).

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. I should probably warn you (in a good way) – there’s a lot of Hugh Grant in this list. A lot. Not surprisingly, the British actor has starred in some of the best British movies from the 90s and early 00s, so you know you’re in for a good one.
Without too much waffle, here are the best movies set in London in chronological order. Remember to use the hashtag #SofaTravels to let us know you’re joining the movement, or to just simply share other movies to watch. Have fun!
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! Now, with the current COVID-19 restrictions in place, travelling to another city (let alone to another country) has become almost impossible, only when strictly necessary.
So I’ve found myself wondering…How can we bring travel to our homes? How can we do a bit of country hopping from the commodity of our sofas? That’s why I figured I would share some of the best movies set in different parts of the world in a series of posts I’ve called, well, Sofa Travels.
Each post will transport us to a particular city and points in time without actually leaving our living rooms. 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.
