I spent about two weeks staying in the nearby Constable Terrace in 1996. I’m sad now that I never found time to actually go inside the gallery, but I did spend some time wandering around the grounds.
There aren’t actually any mountains in the background like there are in the movie, just more buildings on the University of East Anglia campus. I did like the idea of that view, though.
In reality if you look in the other direction, there is a lake and some nice trees nearby (and beyond the trees, my happy place!). It really is a pretty campus and I loved wandering around there during my stay.
When the trailer for Age of Ultron leaked last week, Marvel didn’t run around trying to shut it down (impossible to do, anyway, but we’ve all seen companies desperately try to close the barn door after the horse has run).
