As movie fans, we sometimes aspire to visit specific locations from our favorite films. While it may seem a bit silly, there’s something magical about visiting these locations and imagining the ways in which they were immortalized on the big screen. If you live in Los Angeles, chances are you’ve grown numb to the feeling, but they’re not the only place in the world where movies are shot.

Of course, productions occur all over the world, and in the new webseries Reel Destinations, they will visit locations from your favorite films. The inaugural episode features locations from Downton Abbey and in the future, they’ll be visiting Berkeley Plantation, where films like Atonement, Darkest Hour, Shaun of the Dead, and Phantom Thread shot their exteriors.

Check out the new episode below!

Below is the official description for Reel Destinations:

Reel Destinations explores the areas highlighted by Focus Features films and how locations can be just as much a character in a movie as the actors. Created documentary-style, this hosted “travelogue” sends a small crew to a new location in each episode. We ask locals questions, direct viewers to points of interest, and feature never-before-seen B-roll captured during production of the films to give audiences a special look at each location.

“Our premiere episode, brought to you by VisitBritain, features the amazing locations of the motion picture event Downton Abbey.  Guided by our host Alicia Malone (TCM), we visit the enchanting Highclere Castle, the country town of Bampton, and an Art Deco pub—all of which are featured in the film.”
