Other Information

  • Peninsula Heights was formerly an office building built in the 1960s called Alembic House which was built for the United Nations Association.
  • It was converted to luxury apartments in 1996 and very quickly became infamous thanks to the parties of resident, Jeffrey Archer. Other owners of the two floor penthouse have included John Barry the James Bond composer, and Bernie Ecclestone the Formula one billionaire.
  • The penthouse was the location of Aldous Snow's home in the film Get Him To The Greek. When Barry owned it he rented it on numerous occasions for film makers to help subsidise his expensive living standards. The classic Hammer Horror movie, Theatre of Blood is was also filmed here in 1973 where Vincent Price's character fakes his own death by jumping out of the window into the Thames, whilst the 1968 film The Italian Job has the heist planned around Barry's dining table.
