Ridley Scott's latest masterpiece, Napoleon is taking UK cinemas by storm! 📽️
There are several iconic UK filming locations that served as the backdrop to this epic tale, from historic castles to picturesque countryside. In Napoleon we see the Old Royal Naval College double for 18th and 19th Century France and played host for a seventeen-day production period, during the making of the movie.
The historic venue are enthusiastic about maintaining their longstanding tradition of hosting a diverse range of feature films and TV shows, which helps nuture the scenic tourism for the site and helps draw tourists from far and wide to see the iconic architecture of the Old Royal Naval College. History and heritage are a mojor pull for inbound visitors to Britain and the rest of the UK.

Vineet Bhatia is a talented and internationally renowned Michelin star chef, restauranteur and author, promoting sustainable approaches to food production and advocating for natural ayurvedic medicine. This is what Vineet had to say on his experience:

"Setting out for a new chapter to London in May 1993, with only £7, two suitcases filled with handwritten recipes, and a pocketful of dreams, brings me to a moment overflowing with gratitude. The recognition of receiving an MBE from HM King Charles III at Buckingham Palace marks a truly remarkable journey.

I owe this honour to the two nations I proudly call home - India, for the foundation it provided, and the UK, for offering the opportunity to ‘See Things Differently’."
