Londonist has put together this map of "Fake Britain," which plots over 720 names of fictional cities, towns and villages from films, books, poems and television series.
We've put together a map of fictional locations from film, TV, literature and other sources. Take a look around this alternative nation and see how many places you recognise. From Judge Dredd to Vanity Fair, it's all here.

The vast majority of entries are well defined geographically. Some — such as Beanotown and Blackadder's Dunny on the Wold — are a little more nebulous, but we've added them for fun. Hogwarts is an unmappable location (unless it's a Marauder's Map you're looking at), but we've had a go anyway.
