Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason

London

Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason Location

In the second Bridget Jones movie we're taken around more amazing locations around central London but also to the beautiful scenery of Austria and serenity of Thailand. The locations of the second movie are a great way to extend your movie hike, especially for locations such as Primrose Hill for a spectacular view of London City with the span of high rise and historic buildings along the river Thames appearing almost as a cluster.

Bridget's Flat

8 Bedale Street, Southwark | London | United Kingdom

Bridget's Flat Location

Bridget's flat exterior is fictionally above The Globe Tavern, a corner pub in Bedale Street just across the road from Borough Market in the Southwark district of central London.

The area is just like you imagine from the film, gritty city urban with bustling business in the market and the restaurants and shops across the road, famous for the Mark Darcey (Colin Firth) and Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) fight.

The pub still operates and is always busy after a hard working London day. This is a must visit for the Bridget Jones fan for a photo outside the famous black front door to a drink in this old London tavern. While this is on a public street it is advised that you respect the privacy of the occupants of the various buildings in this street.

Primrose Hill has toilet facilities at the bottom of the hill at the south end. There is free on-street parking which is available at certain times of the week, check the on-street signs for times and day restrictions.  The location can be reached by near-by tube stations, Chalk Farm or Swiss Cottage.

Would you like to... go on a skiing mini break

Vorarlberg | Lech | Austria

Would you like to... go on a skiing mini break Location

The famous ski mini-break scene in the second film, which takes Bridget, Mark Darcey and of course Rebecca Gillies to the amazing scenery of an Austrian ski resort in Lech. Movie hiking to a ski resort is a whole holiday in itself and ski resorts in Austria are some of the best with traditional wooden chalets set around the villiages and mountains. They say that a ski holiday is one of the top seven world experiences and Lech is a great place to start.

If you are planning on visiting the location from the movie for a ski or snowboarding break and this is your first time, we highly recommend getting a set of lessons at your local dry slope or snow centre, in particular to be both confident with your skills and gain a ski/snowboard competance pass, which will make your break much more enjoyable. If you are planning on lessons at the resort then plan ahead and contact local tutors for costs and times. As with all holidays appropriate travel insurance is a must, in particular ensure you have the extra ski/snowboard cover. You should also look at Ski slope rescue insurance. While most ski holiday insurance covers injury they do not cover helicopter rescue costs from the slope should you have an accident. In our opinion we think this is a must. Lastly consider ski pass costs (for access to the ski slopes) and equipment and helmet hire.

* This location may be subject to seasonal or restricted opening dates. Please check their official website for opening dates.

Are you going to step outside or am I going to have to drag you?

The Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, The Serpentine, Hyde Park | London | United Kingdom

Are you going to step outside or am I going to have to drag you? Location

In the second Bridget Jones movie we see the second fight between Daniel Clever (Hugh Grant) and Mark Darcey (Colin Firth) at The Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park. Mark asks Daniel, "Are you going to step outside or am I going to have to drag you?" Daniel simply replies "I think you're going to have to drag me." before the scene cutting to outside and the pair bursting through the doors. The fight takes place around Kensington Gardens in Hyde Park, starting at The Serpentine Gallery and ending at the Italian Gardens.

Hyde park is a wonderful place to visit while you're in London whether on a hot sunny summers day or to take in the glorious golden brown trees and leaves during Autumn. Hyde Park is open to the public. The Serpentine Gallery, supported by the Arts Council England, is open on certain days of the week, full details including opening times are available on their website;
