Based on the novel by Nicolas Searle, the Warner Bros. film follows con artist Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) who meets wealthy widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren), and soon finds himself drawn into her life, soon transforming the seemingly-easy swindle into a treacherous tightrope walk.
The good news for film fans that is that the thriller was shot on location – meaning you can easily go and visit some of the breathtaking places that feature.
The bulk of filming took place across various locations in London, however there were some other UK destinations which featured.
That includes the grandiose Gaddesden Place in Hertfordshire, which served as the filming location for interior shots of scenes in the home of Hannalore Schroder (played by Lily Dodsworth Evans).
It’s not the first time that the 18th century English country house has starred in a film or TV series; it also boasts appearances in the likes of Little Britain, Foyle’s War, Hustle and Jonathan Creek.
Oh, and it’s also the setting for some of Marks and Spencer’s TV ads!
Some of the action in the film takes place on streets in Berlin in 1949 and although there were a few scenes filmed in Berlin on location, for this historic look the cast and crew headed to Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire where the VFX effects were put into place to create the historic feel.
However, it was London where most of the filming took place, with plenty of scenes shot on the city streets and public areas.
Scenes taking place outside Fortnum & Mason in the film were actually not shot in front of the iconic store. Instead, the crew recreated the setting on Piccadilly Pavement as well as the exterior of Hatchards , London’s oldest bookshop.
Other exterior shots were filmed on Earlham Street in Seven Dials, as well as Charing Cross Station where the tube exit at Trafalgar Square featured.
Meanwhile the Olympic Cinema proved the perfect setting for scenes taking place in – you guessed it – the cinema.
You can also spot the interiors of the iconic hatters James Lock & Co. Hatters Ltd on St James’ Street where some of the filming took place.
Other locations include The Railway in Teddington which doubled up as both a gastropub and station for shooting, while the Shisha Garden Grill in Hackney was used for scenes set in a Turkish restaurant.
If you do want to visit, the good news is that despite its reputation for being expensive, there are ways to explore London on a budget.
The Good Liar is released in UK cinemas on Friday 8th November 2019.
