BRIGHTON AND EASTBOURNE, SUSSEX
Location filming for ANGUS, THONGS AND PERFECT SNOGGING took place over a two-week period in and around Brighton and Eastbourne.
Brighton locations: the exteriors of pastel painted houses of residential Borough Street stood in for the exteriors of Georgia’s fictional street and house in Eastbourne; Temple Street doubled for the exterior of Jas’ street and house; a lucky home on Roedean Way was chosen as the residence of snog-master Peter Dyer; Georgia wanders The Lanes of Brighton in her olive fancy dress costume; and the Oh So Bar on Brighton’s seafront was transformed in to the Market Place bar where Georgia first sees Robbie and his band, the Stiff Dylans, play.
Eastbourne locations: Cavendish Place was used as the exterior setting for the fancy dress party Georgia attends (in her olive), and she also runs along the promenade and past the bandstand on the seafront; the Eastbourne Pier and fish and chips shop play host to the Ace Gang, Robbie, Tom and Dave The Laugh; Georgia and Robbie are seen playing air guitar on the beach of Eastbourne’s Sailing Club; and Georgia and Robbie promenade along the seafront and the Beachy Head Walk.
In North London, Queen Mary’s Gardens and Avenue Gardens (in the Inner Circle of Regents Park) stood in for the park where Georgia and Robbie look for ‘missing’ Angus, and come across Jas and Tom. In Acton, Chiquitos at Park Royal was transformed in to the restaurant where Georgia and her family go for dinner.
Ealing locations include the W5 Club on Popes Lane, where the interior scenes for the Stiff Dylans' gig were filmed. A vacant property in Mattock Lane was the location for the interior of the fancy dress party, and also the party where Peter Dyer tries to kiss Georgia. Ellen’s house scenes were filmed in Sunnyside Road, near Ealing Studios. The interiors and some exteriors for Georgia’s house were filmed on a purpose build set at Ealing Studios.
Hampton Lido in Hampton stood in for Eastbourne Lido. The Salsa Club (where Georgia, Ellen and Libby spy on Georgia’s Mum and Jem) was filmed at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington; and Robbie and Tom’s mum’s organic shop interior and exterior scenes were filmed at Pincho Restaurant, Church Street, Twickenham.
The interior and exteriors of Georgia’s school were filmed at Bishopshalt School in Hillingdon, Middlesex, and the interior and exterior scenes of the club where Georgia has her surprise birthday party were filmed at Liquid nightclub in Uxbridge, also in Middlesex.
