Bridget Jones’ Diary (Dir: Sharon Maguire, 2001).

Above ‘The Globe’ pub, 8 Bedale St, Borough Market, London, UK.

Mysteriously enough, characters in films who are single, with what you would imagine to be a modest incomes still manage to live in fantastic sized and situated apartments, and Bridget Jones has one of the best, above the Globe pub in Borough Markets, right near London Bridge Station. The shops in the area (mostly trendy bars and cafes) were transformed into Bridget’s street including the Greek restaurant Daniel and Mr Darcy fight through the window of.

The restaurant locations where Bridget meets her friends are Momo’s 25-27 Heddon St. and the Restaurant at the Tate Modern, Bankside. The Institute of Contemporary Arts was used to shoot the launch of the novel Kafka’s Motorbike and Bridget and Daniel took their mini break at Stoke Park Club, Buckinghamshire. Though Momo’s is expensive it’s not out of the question and the Tate Modern restaurant is a lot less swankier than the set dresses make it look - so if you’re looking to impress a first date who’s about the right age it could be a good option… If you’re going to visit Bridget go on Friday or Saturday for the fresh produce markets.

what's the town at the beginning of bridget jones diray.

where's the town where Bridget's mum apparently lives please?

The village where Bridget's Mum lives is called Snowshill - fitting considering it was shot under snow! The area around Shere, in Surrey was used as the village outskirts.
