O've got a feeling the B&B Chris runs out the door of is in Streatham. I only know this cause I used to live there, although I may be wrong

Sure the nightclub @ the end is in Uxbridge.

At Paddington station, army soldiers stand guard around and there is a limo waiting for Neil and Chris.!

Spent the day in Clacton-on-Sea on Friday. Had completely forgotten this was the filming location but immediately recognised it! This is where Neil buys a postcard!Image

The footage of the trains emerging from the tunnel just before Chris is on the platform is Kings Cross

Oh hang on, I'm thinking of the Kings Cross video from 'Projections'

Oops

I suspect the Pets brought the only vague glamour to the place since the Victorian era. Now only famous for Brexit supporters and slimy molluscs in aspic, though the two are interchangeable.

I've visited several on the best and worst seasides listed there. I wholeheartedly agree with the outcomes, but I think it's a bit sad that the once great Victorian seaside spots are now ranked among the worst. 100+ years of development in those and we're yearning for the beaches that are more remote and unadulterated. How long before those become the top 10 worst in the UK? Another 100 years? :(
