An unpleasant tale of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. This film is waiting for your input. Grab more stills, take the “nows”, add anecdotes, locations, news and views. Also when next you visit New York, California or Paris, take your camera, and bring back a few snaps.
Can you help:
If you have any information regarding this film, any of the stills, or even better, some NOW shots please contact us.
Edwardian mansion block, central London?
A different view.
Yes it is Oakwood Court, just north of Peeping Tom's Melbury Road. SJ
Same place. Maybe it is the Oakwood Court, West Kensington, London, W 14 mentioned in Simon's book. Pictures someone?
Same as sn001, still Oakwood Court but closer to Addison Road. SJ
- 'Now' required
A cinema or a club, with railings.
Could easily be Lots Road, Chelsea, site of Optimists of Nine Elms, and also the Deadly Affair. ... by the side of Bramley Arms looking towards Quadrophenia's junkyard. SJ
The tower block is still there but obscured now, and the Arms was converted back in 1988. SJ
A factory, next door to housing. The site behind the blue boarding was being demolished when 'Withnail & I' set off for the country, and then it was built upon where was based, before moving to W14, Anova Books, yes those who published my location guide and sequel. This location also appears in 'The Satanic Rites of Dracula' and 'Operation Third Form'. SJ
Taken from Bard Road, W10
A bus, a bit off course, if this really is Lots Road.
Freston Road now. SJ
Baloon Tavern, Lots Road Diner, which ever one you like. ...I prefer the Bramley Arms, W10. Similar shape but this one's thinner! SJ
Much missed: see London Movie Guide, published July 2011, for details of many more of this pub's cinematic appearances. SJ

Main road, double yellow chevrons, passageway and a yellow painted pub?

Double yellow lines and triple chevrons, a really busy paint job!
The same street now, Ingestre Place. (PW)

Tower Bridge, Thames, London
Houses of Parliament, London.
Peter took this calmer but similar view, with an added bird!
Westminster Pier, London. There are many other "thens" to be pulled for this film, in the UK, USA and France. So, what more reason do you need for a spot of film induced tourism than this story of sex, drugs and rock and roll?
