The map: Locations, locations, locations

Where did Elizabeth really reign supreme, why is Ireland in the Isle of Man, and whatever happened to Sherwood Forest? A film buff's guide to Britain

The British film industry truly is big business - not just the box-office impact of gong-winning international hits such as Elizabeth and Mrs Brown, but in terms of the tourism generated for all those more or less picturesque locations. At one end of the scale, the Crown Hotel in Amersham, location for romantic trysting in Four Weddings and a Funeral, is now fully booked into the millennium. Scotland, meanwhile, is believed to have attracted between pounds 7m and pounds 15m in extra tourist revenue thanks to blockbusters such as Rob Roy and Braveheart. So this summer why not follow in the footsteps of the stars and go on location - with a little help from the 1999 British Tourist Authority Movie Map? Lights! Camera! Day trip!
