Put yourself in the movie! Step inside dozens of real-life locations with this gloriously geeky, map-filled compendium.

Locations are everything. They transport us to far-flung worlds and dystopian futures, and provide the backdrop to intergalactic battles and rampaging monsters. Our most obsessed-about stories would be nothing without them.

Meticulously researched and compiled by self-proclaimed superfans and travel experts, The Screen Traveler's Guide maps the real-life locations behind your favorite shows and scenes. Follow the Avengers' battle of New York, discover the Croatian location for Game of Thrones' King's Landing, find out how New Zealand transformed into Lord of the Rings' Middle Earth, uncover exactly where the magical world of Harry Potter is set - and much more.

Along the way, you'll discover the landmarks to avoid during an alien invasion, the strangest location stand-ins (did you know, for example, that Liverpool stood in for Brooklyn in Captain America?), the place that's doubled as more countries than any other, and lots of travel inspiration from your pop culture cornerstones.

Welcome to the ultimate travel guide for every screen geek.
We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
 
From first words to the Big Bang, from the wonders of nature to city adventures, you will find expert knowledge, hours of fun and endless inspiration in the pages of our books.
