Behind the Scenes: 7 Famous TV Homes that You can Actually Visit

If you are someone that is a fan of many popular TV shows and films, you may have found yourself focusing on more than the drama of what you are watching. This is especially the case if you are watching a TV show that is often set in the same place. If you are constantly seeing your favorite characters functioning within one space, it is hard not to get some form of emotional attachment to that space. When the shows or movie series that you love ends, you can often find yourself also missing the environment in which they were filmed.

 

A lot of the time, the scenes that you are seeing unfold are not actually taking place in an actual home or apartment- they are instead taking place on a set. This can be extremely disappointing if you are someone that is a big fan and would like the chance to visit the location that once housed all of your favorite stars, however luckily a lot of sets do allow you to visit and tour.
