Other Information

  • For the flat of Alex DeLarge, the lead character of A Clockwork Orange, filming took place in Canterbury House. Director Stanley Kubrick paid the occupiers to move out, spent 5,000 redecorating, and then had the flat returned to its original state for them... only to return weeks later to move them out again to film two additional scenes. A plaque commemorating this sits on the outside of the building.
  • Other location for Canterbury House has included productions as diverse as One The Buses and Eastenders, thanks in no small part to the proximity of the building to Elstree Film Studios.
