All the Bridget Jones London filming locations

Simon Calder’s Travel

Bridget Jones is back. Author Helen Fielding has confirmed that the rom-com trilogy is getting a fourth instalment in Jones’s chronicles looking for love – and the cameras are set to start rolling across London in May.

Franchise leading lady Renée Zellweger, alongside love rivals Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Patrick Dempsey, have starred in the three films and rumours are swirling around who will return to the diary writer’s next narrative.

The last time we saw her enviable zone 1 flat eight years ago, the serial singleton, now firmly in her forties, married Mark Darcy (Firth) in a shift from her cigarette and chardonnay-fuelled days.

For the fourth film, the plot is believed to be based on Fielding’s 2013 novel, Mad About the Boy, that is yet to appear on screen, and will likely cover the eppnymous character’s next chapter: motherhood.

With several of the street scenes, bar debriefs and classic faux pas locations easily stumbled upon on a walking tour of London, here’s where to head for a behind-the-scenes look at Bridget Jones’s life.

Where is Bridget Jones filmed?

Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)

Aside from a host of London film studios, Zellweger, Firth and Grant filmed across the city to bring the Bridget Jones column to life.

8 Beadle Street, Southwark 

Bridget’s endearingly chaotic flat sits in an enviable zone 1 location on Beadle Street in Southwark. The spacious site of many a solo singalong and glass of wine raises some serious salary questions…

Globe Tavern, Borough Market

For the flat exterior, the Globe Tavern – a traditional British pub in Borough Market – is the iconic location below the singleton’s residence, just next to the tracks of London Bridge station.

Pickfords Wharf Apartments, Clink Street

Daniel Cleaver’s (Grant) suave bachelor pad is in a converted 19th-century warehouse on Clink Street overlooking the Thames. The property went on sale for over £3 million in 2012 – we can only assume the price hiked due to the hilarious tummy-control knicker scene that was filmed there.
