There has always been a sense of excitement when you picture yourself in the location of a famous blockbuster film or TV series. But it’s even more exciting when you find out that the place you see on TV exists, and you can visit where your favourite character or actor once stood.
Due to the recent stay-at-home guidelines put in place earlier this year, Netflix subscriptions skyrocketed and reached an all-time high, giving viewers the chance to binge watch as much as they want.
