Bannen and Neal ride across Bayswater Road, London W2, after a hack in Hyde Park.

Dismounting at Bathurst Mews.

The Hyde Park Stables in Bathurst Mews, looking south of Bathurst Street, W2. SJ

<?php echo 3; ?>

Hyde Park Stables again.

The stables closed in late 2018, leaving, after the closure and conversion of the Knightsbridge Riding Club in Elvaston Mews in about 2008, just the one in the park area. The Ross Nye is just round the corner in Bathurst Mews. SJ

Bannen drives Neal back to her London domicile. Dave W, a self confessed "location anorak" provides the location, Buckingham Gate, London SW1 looking towards Portland House and advises that "The Prisoner" had his bachelor pad there.(RL)

Looking from Buckingham Place towards Place Street. The two towering buildings survive, the front one now called The View SW1, 20 Palace Street, and Portland House at the back only just finished the year before filming. The Prisoner lived at 1 Buckingham Place, next to the post-box. SJ

<?php echo 5; ?>

Arriving at the front door. Looks very Mayfair-ish. As a result of Capture 4 Dave establishes the exact front door as No 8 Buckingham Place, London SW1 (RL)

And here is no8 today, with the row unchanged. SJ

Jürgens and Bannen see off Eggar and Neal at probably Charing Cross station.

image no 6

Following a general discussion and advice from Glyn Horton it is agreed that the station is indeed Charing Cross and Dave W provides the photo confirmation with thanks to the station assistant for permitting him to take the shot. It probably should be from Platform 4 but we have the match! (RL)

The rather splendid house in the country. Probably within generous reach of Shepperton Studios where production was based.
