Interesting settings

What are your thoughts on well known settings being used as backdrops? Is it enlightening or annoying? A cop-out?

 I recently read "A Play of Knaves" by Frazer, which had an interesting setting, that of the Uffington Horse. While the horse didnt play a lead character, I enjoyed how the presence of it toned the setting.

 However, in some novels, I have found the harping on certain locations, mainly British but some in Acre, some in France to be unbearable.
