'If I forget to tell you later, I had a really good time tonight" - Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman
Celebrating 25 years of the iconic feature film, Pretty Woman, Beverly Hills invites film fanatics to experience life like a movie star.
Beverly Hills has long been a backdrop for major films and television shows but none captured the style and opulence of the city quite like Pretty Woman. Walk the same streets as Julia Roberts and Richard Gere did in this glamourous city, captured throughout the much loved 1990 classic.
Relive your favouite moments, with the 'Seen on Screen" walking tour, which includes an up close look of the many sites and experiences shown in the film such as Greystone Manor, Rodeo Drive and Beverly Wilshire (A Four Seasons Hotel). Beverly Hills is home to some of the finest hotels around the world, owning the highest number in four and five star hotels within the US, second to New York. Soak in a relaxing bath in one of the top suites the city has to offer including The Beverly Hilton, The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows and The Peninsula Beverly Hills, amongst others.
Endulge with those 'slippery little suckers" and experience dining at its finest at one of Beverly Hills' eclectic and international restaurants along -Little Restaurant Row' on Canon Drive. Some of the world's best chefs line this street, such as Wolfgang Puck of Spago, seeking to bring a little taste of home to Beverly Hills. You will be spoilt for choice with recently opened high-end restaurants such as Curtis Stone's New American Eatery, Maude, which creates a seasonally inspired tasting menu every month, and Ocean Prime, a steak and seafood restaurant known
for its lavish ambiance and cocktail list.
