Bullet to Bejing (1995)
Corner of Portobello Road and Colville Terrace just opposite the Duke of Wellington Public House. The building was unchanged until around 2007 when it became fairtrade type Café. As of 2010 it is following the general trend of the once Bohemian Portobello Road to mutate into an chic upscale shopping area and is now a Kurt Geiger ladies shoe store. A house front on Colville Terrace just behind the camera and slightly further East was used in a night scene in Hippie Hippie Shake (unreleased) . The location of the book shop Notting Hill (1999) at 142 Portobello Road is just a few meters back up Portobello Road next to the entrance to the school on the east side of the road. Most of the other locations in Notting Hill (1999) are within a few hundred meters of this junction.
Portobello Road Market . The actor is now walking back toward the Duke of Wellington, which is to the left of the camera tripod.
Duke of Wellingtonn Public House, Corner of Colville Terrace and Portobello Road . You can see this road junction in Hippie Hippie Shake where the scene opens with a man with an umbrella crossing a Portobello Road on a rainy night. The house exterior used in Performance (1970) is a block to the East of here on the NW corner of Powis Square. Just to the south west at the Kensington Park Road end of Arundel Gardens is the location of the garden apartment in Hippie Hippie Shake (unreleased) . The scene was shot within the gardens on the south side right next to Kensington Park Road. Several scenes in Jack Nicholson's The Passenger (1970) were filmed in Landsdowne Cresent, to the south west.
The Duke of Wellington public house has had a make-over and the shop on the corner over which the man lives is about to become a Kurt Geiger store.
The opposite view, looking south, as if seated outside the Duke of Wellington bar. Portobello Road is center frame. If you travel up Portobello Road, across one juction, and continue three hundred meters, you will find yourself at Denbigh Mews, used in The Italian Job (1969) as the location of Charlie Croker's apartment.
Entering Piccadilly Circus . The opening scene in The Ipcress File (1965) is shot in the same location, with the automobile joining Piccadilly Circus from Piccadilly Street . The Café Royale (left of the large stone building center frame) can be viewed in its heyday from almost the same camera angle in A Dandy in Aspic (1967).
Canadian High Commission, Trafalgar Square . Several scenes in The Ipcress File (1965) are filmed just to the south east of here in Trafalgar Square itself.
Driving west on Newgate Street at St Pauls Cathedral . St Pauls' Cathedral is used as a backdrop in many motion pictures. You can see it in Hitchcock's Stage Fright (1950) , and in episode three and episode twelve of The Persuaders! (1971) which use Cheapside Street , running east away from the cathedral on its south side. The opening scene in David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (1962) is shot on the steps of this cathedral.
Looking South on Shaftesbury Avenue to Piccadilly Circus . You can see this location in Episode Four of The Persauders! (1971) Greensleeves.
