Top Set-Jetting Destinations for 2024

One of the leading travel trends right now, is set-jetting or the travel to places seen on the screen. The team at BonusInsider discovered the filming locations where some of the most anticipated movies of 2024 had been shot identified those places that were filmed the most, and compiled a list of the best set-jetting destinations for 2024.

This year, the travel industry experienced a huge wave of post-Covid “revenge travel” when many decided to take the trip that had been canceled because of the pandemic. While this phenomenon is still largely happening, more and more travel agencies are seeing people visiting destinations that inspire a certain feeling. Driven by the binge-watching that exploded during the lockdowns, set-jetting does just that – it puts the focus on the places seen on the screen, allowing the traveler to step inside the shoes of their favorite on-screen character.

Curious to see where 2024’s films and TV shows were shot and whether these places were worth visiting, BonusInsider’s team picked some of the most anticipated titles of 2024 and checked their filming locations.

Based on our research, these are the top 10 set-jetting destinations for 2024:

To come up with that list, the team at BonusInsider picked 30 movies and TV shows with a release date after November 1, 2023. We sifted through a large number of titles, excluding animated movies and those productions, for which we could not find reliable information. Then we took those places that were used as filming locations in multiple films and TV shows.

Let’s talk about top 3 Set-Jetting Destinations to Visit in 2024:

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

The first entry on this list is Australia’s largest city, Sydney, which has plenty of famous tourist sites such as the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Of course, the peak summer season from December to February is not recommended; a better time to visit would be March through May and from September to November.

Movie enthusiasts know well that the city has been one of the popular filming locations for Hollywood productions because of its striking cityscapes and unique areas that surround it. One of the productions filmed here is the upcoming David Leitch film “The Fall Guy”, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt. The action comedy used several filming locations across the city, including the pedestrian zone Martin Place, the Sydney Opera House, and the suburb of Kurnell. Some of the scenes were also shot at the Disney Studios, Moore Park in Sydney.

One of the most anticipated premieres of 2024, “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga”, starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth, was shot entirely in the state of New South Wales, including its capital Sydney. Along with Kurnell, the other suburb that served as a set to the movie, was Melrose Park. The main filming locations, however, were all over the Australian outback such as the frontier mining town of Broken Hill, and the village of Silverton. Silverton, in particular, has that desert, post-apocalyptic vibe; with a population of around 50, it is practically a ghost town.

Another movie shot across several Sydney locations is “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes”, which is expected to be released in May of next year. The film is set many years after the reign of Caesar and stars Owen Teague in the lead role, “The Witcher”’s Freya Allan, as well as Kevin Durand, Peter Macon, and William H. Macy.

London, England, UK

For decades, London has been among the most featured cities in film and television so it is hardly a surprise that it comes second on this list. Film-makers seem to be infatuated with its charm, no shortage of historical landmarks, royal residences, and centuries-old architecture. Certain scenes of “The Crown: Season 6” and “Bridgerton: Season 3” were also filmed here.

The sixth series of the “Crown” includes scenes with President Clinton set in Chicago, but the production never left the UK. London’s Canary Wharf serves as a fake, yet perfectly believable Chicago. Plenty of London locations can be seen in “Bridgerton”, too. Along with the Ranger’s House next to Greenwich Park (its exterior is used for the home of the Bridgerton family in the show), other places you can recognise are the Royal Naval College and the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul, which is located inside the Royal Naval College.

One of 2024’s biggest movies, “Wonka”, has also travelled to London for shooting. The star-studded film, which is an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, features Timothée Chalamet in the lead role, alongside Hugh Grant and Rowan Atkinson. Some of the scenes were filmed in the Rivoli Ballroom in Crofton Park, south-east London. This is the only ballroom from the 1950s in London that has been kept in its original condition, including red velvet, chandeliers, and Chinese lanterns. All these locations are open for visitors – the Rivoli actually hosts many music and dance events.

Prague, Czech Republic

Third on the list of the best set-jetting destinations for 2024 is Prague. The capital city of the Czech Republic is wonderful to visit all year round, although, in the summer, visitors can expect huge crowds and elevated prices, while the winter is quite cold and snowy (the Christmas markets, however, are worth it). Spring and autumn, on the other hand, might be the best time to visit, especially in September when the weather is still warm, the prices are more affordable, and there are fewer crowds at popular tourist sites.

One of the movies filmed in the city is “Ballerina” (release expected in June), a spin-off of the “John Wick” franchise, starring Ana de Armas, Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and Norman Reedus. Among the filming locations are the Old Town of Prague, including Dlouhá Street famous for its bars and nightlife, and around the National Theatre of Prague. The crew also shot in Ostrava and the small town of Štramberk.

Another upcoming movie filmed in Prague is the gothic horror “Nosferatu”, a remake of the iconic German 1922 film of the same name. The film, which will be released on Christmas Day 2024, stars Lily-Rose Depp, Bill Skarsgård, and Nicholas Hoult, and is based on Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. Some scenes were also shot in the town of Rožmitál pod Třemšínem.
