The King’s Speech didn’t just win in the film stakes – tourism will benefit too.  Tour operators have mainly been slow to react, but more inbound operators are expected to put extra “Royal Tourism product” into their programmes for next year, and not only due to Will and Kate’s Wedding.  Colin Firth’s triumph will also be good for the film’s locations – notably Buckingham Palace (and its Faberge exhibition later this year).  Windsor Great Park and the villages around Balmoral and Sandringham are expected to benefit this summer too.  The Royal Parks in London, Ely Cathedral, Hatfield House and Knebworth House were also locations used in the film, and Queens Street Mill Textile Museum in Burnley (apparently used for the factory scenes where workers are listening to wireless speeches) can lay claim to be the unlikeliest beneficiary.
