|Series 1||Series 2, 4, 5 & 6||Series 3||Series 7||Series 8, 9 & 10||Series 11|
THE WINCHESTER CLUB 1 - THEN & NOW
CHALK FARM PARADE, ADELAIDE ROAD, NW3
This location is used throughout series 1. This was a real club at the time of filming, called The Eton Club. The original club is almost unrecognisable these days.
The first series is actually shot inside and outside this club. As the crew were based in Hammersmith it became more difficult to travel back and forth to this location, so a studio set was built for indoor scenes in from series 2 onwards.
This location also features in the end credits of 'The Terry McCann Years'.

THE VICTORIA PUB, 68-70 PAGE'S WALK, SE1
In the first of the 2009 series #11.1 'Better The Devil You Know' this pub still uses its original sign, before it later burns down. The top left picture is the first glimpse we get of the pub.
In #11.2 'In Vino Veritas' it is resurrected as 'The Winchester' - shown below on the left. Notice how the van is strategically positioned to cover the pub's original green sign.
This pub has its own website here.
