If you want to find out more about the history of television, look no further than Toronto’s often overlooked but always fascinating MZTV Museum of Television. It features a large collection of vintage TVs including the original TV from the 1939 World Fair. There’s also an app for your phone that offers a very good self-guided tour of the museum’s many curiosities. Suits is set in New York but in reality, most of the filming is done in Toronto’s Financial District. Bay Adelaide Centre plays the Pearson Specter Litt building; occasionally you may see your favourite Suits stars filming outside. The Handmaid’s Tale, starring Elizabeth Moss used The Church of St Aidan as The Red Centre (where the handmaids are trained up) and the banquet scene from series one where the Gilead children were paraded was filmed at the Fairmount Royal York Hotel.

Oresund Bridge, Copenhagen

Oresund Bridge, the bridge that inspired ‘The Bridge.’ The bridge links Copenhagen to Malmo. And what a lovely bridge it is. Have I said bridge enough yet in this caption?
