Tv-Inspired Weekends

Step into your own detective drama, zeitgeisty series or fantasy epic with a tour of these ready-made TV studios


Only a truly eagle-eyed detective would notice that much of Sherlock isn’t flmed in London, but rather another capital, 150 miles down the M4: Cardiff. Among the locations you’ll fnd here are Roland Kerr College, where the murderous cabbie lures Sherlock in the frst episode (in reality, Cardiff University Chemistry School), and the National Museum of Wales, where the sleuth decodes strange symbols in ‘The Blind Banker’. A good number of bars and restaurants in the Welsh city do impressions of their London cousins, but the loveliest watering hole in the series is the Bush Inn, 10 miles out of town, which doubled as the Cross Keys in ‘The Hounds of Baskerville’ (bushinn-sthilary.com). Find more locations at sherlockology.com.
