Visitors to Westminster can discover more about iconic film director Alfred Hitchcock on regular tours with author Sandra Shevey.
The walks take place every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday throughout the whole year, starting at 11am and lasting for three hours. During the tour participants can explore the extent to which Hitchcock changed filming locations to suit himself or commercial pressures.
The Alfred Hitchcock London Locations Walk was first started in 1999 after Sandra uncovered some of Hitchcock's most arcane filming locations right here in the city - they were featured in "Frenzy", "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and "The Paradine Case".
During the tour, Sandra uses original location art and talks about what the famous director was really like. Sandra also plays excerpts from her original 1.5 hour audio interview with Hitchcock in 1972, in which he discussed previously unknown secrets concerning filming technique and location. Period photos and storyboards are also used to compare real locations with Hitchcock's re-interpretations of them.
The London Walk is run in partnership with the New York City Locations Walk, which first started in 2001. The New York tour includes locations in Manhattan and Queens which were featured in "North by Northwest", "The Wrong Man", "Rear Window" and "Strangers On A Train".
The cost of the London Walk is £25 excluding Travelcard Zones (1 and 2).
