Does anybody now where Following was shot in the U.K or at least the neighborhood that boroughs that it takes place in. I am living in London for a couple of months so I would like to see where Chris Nolan first movie takes place.

Start watching this at 3:44. He gives at least a little bit of a description. Not sure of the exact buildings, but it seems to mention the general area.

- The young man's flat was in Elephant & castle, probably ripped down now as they've totally regenerated the area.
- The nightclub always reminds me of a place just off Charing cross road by The George pub (immediately south of the building site for the new TCR station) it's changed names/ownership/themes loads of times - don't know for sure it was that though.
- The house with the piano that the blonde is in was in Highgate.
- Theres an external shot of someone (can't remember if it was Cobb or the young man) coming out of a building, that's near Goodge street station on tottenham court road.
- the cafe at the start was on TCR as well. Lots has happened to the area since the mid 90's though.
- and as zcobb says, there's a shot of Covent garden - the one with the low barrier across the road, thats the north west corner of the main plaza of covent garden.
- and lots of the walking round the streets shots were around tottenham court road/goodge street/Mortimer street/Russell square/soho/covent garden etc

I know the last shot was in Covent Garden and they basically just had to (hope)& rely on no one looking at the camera as they got the shot...
