The Paradine Case (1947)

dir. Alfred Hitchcock

Mrs. Paradine’s (Alida Valli) house – 33 Wilton Crescent, London SW1.

The police station – 28 Bow Street, London WC2. It was the oldest police station in London, located next to Bow Street Magistrates' Court, the most famous magistrates' court in England. The station was established in 1829, and closed in the 1990s. The court closed its doors in 2006 and the building was later sold to Austrian developers. Plans for the redevelopment include the retention of prison cells and the establishment of a police museum on the site.

Anthony Keane’s (Gregory Peck) house – 60 Portland Place, London W1

The prison – HMP Holloway, Parkhurst Road, London N7. The old castle-like building was demolished and replaced with a modern prison complex in 1971-1985.

Sir Simon’s (Charles Coburn) apartment building – Barrie House, Lancaster Gate, London W2

The street view of Keane’s house – Portland Place at Weymouth Street, London W1

Keane arriving in Cumbria – Coniston Railway Station, Coniston, Cumbria. The station was completely closed by 1962 and left to decay.

The station building – Braithwaite Railway Station, Braithwaite, Cumbria. In the film, Coniston and Braithwaite are supposed to be the same station but in reality, they are about 50 miles apart. The station closed in 1966. The building is now a private residence.

‘Station Hotel’ – Drunken Duck Inn, Barngates, Ambleside, Cumbria.

Riding to Hindley Hall – Yew Tree Farm, Coniston, Cumbria

The church on the road to Hindley Hall – Still searching for this location

The bridge – Grange Bridge, Grange, Keswick, Cumbria

Hindley Hall – Langdale Chase Hotel, Ambleside Road, Windermere, Cumbria

The lake view – Lake Windermere, Cumbria

Keane arriving in London – It’s probably Euston Station but it’s hard to confirm because the old station was demolished in 1961-62 and replaced with a new building.

The courthouse – Old Bailey, Old Bailey at Newgate Street, London EC4
