Bridget Jones Diary. On Location in London #book2movies

No matter how we felt about the sequels, we all fell in love with Bridget in Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones Diary. Most of us saw a bit of ourselves in her, whether it was the overeating, over-imbibing misfit or the plucky lost girl who refused to give up, her honesty about her own flaws and foibles helped us laugh at ourselves. Rene Zelwegger with her brave British accent channeled Bridget’s flirty spirit.

Hidden under the arches of London Bridge at the Globe Tavern in Boroughs Market is the flat where Bridget lived. My husband and I visited during our trip to London and saw this woman waiting out in front. I'm not sure if she was waiting for Colin Firth or Hugh Grant to show up. She may be waiting still!

Notice the rubbish bins in the film set vs the plastic bags by the door in the real life image? That seems to be the trend these days. Have you noticed plastic bags of trash outside restaurants and retail shops too?

Just down the street is #5 Bedale Street,where Colin Firth and Hugh Grant brawled ineffectually in the street like a couple of old women in a catfight.

Shame on me, I left my notes back at our hotel so we didn't find the location for the fight scene. Hmmm. I wonder if that's a legitimate excuse to go back to London next year?
