Where Tom Cruise has filmed Mission Impossible 8 in London and other franchise filming locations

Tom Cruise is in London this week for location work on the eighth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise: Dead Reckoning Part Two.

Tom Cruise has been spotted a few times in the capital over the past few days as the filming for Mission Impossible 8 came to the city. Although it’s not the first time the spy franchise has shot in the capital.

Shooting for the latest Mission Impossible film took place in London over the weekend, with Tom Cruise seen sprinting on Westminster Bridge on Sunday (March 24).

Filming continued across the city in South Kensington near the Natural History Museum on Monday (March 25) as another dramatic shoot saw Cruise storm out of the building.

Throughout Mission Impossible’s past seven releases, London has been a staple feature in the popular movie franchise.

Some of the capital’s most famous landmarks including Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral have featured in past movies, as well as museums including both Tate Britain and Tate Modern. 

Here’s a look at some of the other London locations that have hosted filming for the franchise over the years.
