Victoria Station WH Smiths is shown in the West End girls video, it has different signage now but you'd be able to walk in the spot the group were in the video if you go from WH Smiths to the little HMV branch near Platform 10.

Go down Carnaby Street to see where Neil used to work, and Liberty where he was spotted shopping a few times. Soho is worth a wander anyway, you'll find PSB items in the record shops of Berwick Street just a short walk from Carnaby St, and Brewer Street/Berwick Street/Old Compton Street still has a little of that seedy Soho vibe seen briefly in the West End girls video.

Go West to South Kensington to walk around some of the places mentioned in "The Ghost Of Myself" such as the V&A.

That's all I can think of for now. Have fun!

All of that WH Smiths has been knocked down in recent weeks...

We found this out from another fan who had a picture of the shop before it closed. Unfortunately, it's been completely re-done inside but it's still worth going in to have a hot chocolate!

I happened to visit that bakery a few months ago. really nice place...

If I'm right about the address, it's now The Ivy Asia Chelsea.
