Starring: Richard E. Grant and Helena Bonham Carter

In 1930s London, a successful advertising copywriter gives up his job to become a poet

This successful comedy romance based on George Orwell’s 1936 novel of the same name features a couple of scenes filmed at London St Pancras station, though no trains are involved.

Helena Bonham Carter and Richard E. Grant make their way into the ticket hall at St Pancras
The pair are now on the concourse with the entrance to platform 1 behind them
Now back on his own, Richard E. Grant stands in the booking hall. The wonderful wood panelled ticket windows and the two-tone coloured brick arch behind give the impression of a church, and not a station.
