London Film Festival 2014: 10 Films That Will Inspire You to Travel

Soo Kim, The Daily Telegraph, October 08, 2014

1. The Imitation Game

This Second World War drama about the life of Alan Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), the British mathematician who helped crack the Enigma code of Nazi Germany, was shot in several locations around Britain including Bletchley Park, the code-breaking site itself, which celebrated the completion of its £8 million restoration project earlier this year. Visitors to the centre can take a self-guided audio tour covering the four main areas of wartime operation, from intelligence gathering to the dissemination of information to MI6. Other filming locations included the former home of Ian Fleming, the author and creator of the James Bond novel series, as well as London, Oxfordshire and Dorset, where Turing was educated.
