W.C Boggs & Son's toilet factory is the timber yard in Pinewood Studios.
Apart from the fake walls being removed, not much has changed.

This is the old Odeon cinema on Uxbridge High Street.
The cinema was closed in June 1982 and later demolished in September 1984. The site is now a gym.

Just down the road from the old cinema.

The Whippit Inn is Heatherden Hall in Pinewood.
And what a great place it is too!

Then

The gang arrive in Brighton.
Their luncheon appointment is at Clarges Hotel. Nowadays Clarges Apartments. This place used to be owned by Dora Bryan; Nora in Carry On Sergeant.

Then

Onto the Pier.
This is the Palace Pier in Brighton. Although this now goes by the name of the Brighton Pier, due to it's neighbour, the West Pier, being destroyed.

Then


Now


The entrance.
You no longer have to pay like the gang did!

More from the Palace Pier..
This is the only shot that still looks the same today as it did in 1971. The old theatre on the pier has been removed, as have a lot of the old buildings, to be replaced by a funfair. Indeed, the steps leading down to the shooting gallery, seen on the right of the 'then' picture no longer exist. This also goes some way to explain why they're aren't a great deal of 'now' pictures of the pier - because it all looks so different!

The Piers Helter Skelter
This was badly scorched during a fire in 2005, in which the Ghost Train was destroyed. There were rumours that it would be removed, but thankfully it was restored and is still on the pier, although in a different position.

Then


Now


Brighton Seafront.
Pretty much unchanged, unlike the bloody pier!

Then


Now


The wives of the workers (and Charles Coote!) advance on the factory.
Again, this is in the grounds of Pinewood.
