Walking Hitchcock’s London

Some of the memorable sequences from Alfred Hitchcock’s Hollywood movies are brought to life on the streets of London by film historian Sandra Shevey.

Some of the memorable sequences from Alfred Hitchcock’s Hollywood movies are brought to life on the streets of London by film historian Sandra Shevey. Ms Shevey, who met the great director in 1972, leads three-hour walking tours to locations used in three of his films: Frenzy, The Man Who Knew Too Much and The Paradine Case. Held three times weekly (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday) all year, the walks must be pre-booked and cost £25, plus a Travelcard is required (£4.90).

Shevey says there is a lot of 1930s London still to be seen: while some of the sites visited are landmarks, others are more obscure and are the result of a montage of location, matte effects and studio interiors which she illustrates with set designs and old photographs.
