Romance might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the city, but there have been some classic romantic films based in London. The British are known for their sense of humor, so many of them are romantic comedies. Others have a more dramatic spin, though. Either way, the city's rich and varied locations provide a nice range of settings in which two characters can fall head over heels. From My Fair Lady to Notting Hill, this list will determine the best romance film set in London.
