Movies for England and Ireland

Chatsworth-0249mIn 2013 Matt and I went to England and Ireland! We went to visit his sister, Emily, who was finishing up a year at the University of Cambridge. The three of us took a little tour around England (London, Windsor, Stonehenge, Bath, Lancaster, the Lake District, the Peak District, Cambridge) and then took a little road trip around Ireland (Dublin, Galway, Cong, Connemara, Cliffs of Moher, Trim). We had a lovely time! Before our trip, we watched some English and Irish movies — we’d had such a fun time with our Vegas movies that we did it again! And this time, we enlisted the help of English and Irish friends who helped us create our lists. Thanks to Hilary and Gill!

Here was our list:


  • Calendar Girls
  • The Iron Lady
  • Jane Eyre
  • The King’s Speech
  • Miss Potter
  • Notting Hill
  • Pride & Prejudice
  • The Queen
  • Snatch
  • The Young Victoria


  • Braveheart (its about Scotland & England, but it was on the list for Ireland because it was filmed at a castle in Trim that we visited)
  • Leap Year
  • The Field
  • The Matchmaker
  • Michael Collins
  • The Quiet Man

    I can’t remember if I told you this, but the last time I toured Trim Castle (where Braveheart was filmed), the guide told us the executioner at the end was played by the local electrician!
