One of the coolest things about walking around London was spotting amazing buildings that looked familiar.  Why do they look so familiar when I’ve never visited before?  Because they are in the movies, of course!

This is Somerset House, which was absolutely beautiful, and possibly familiar to you from such movies as Sleepy Hollow, Love Actually (my favorite), Sherlock Holmes, Tomorrow Never Dies, Golden Eye, Shanghai Nights, and London Has Fallen.

Somerset House plays  much more of a role in European history, though, besides just a backdrop for Hollywood, but I thought it was cool to share some famous sites from our visit.
