Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Paperhouse":
Paperhouse was filmed on location in London and Ilfracombe, North Devon, England. [Thanks to Ian Butterworth]
The "Royal Britannia Hotel" in Ilfracombe, North Devon (Room 6) was used for the hotel scene at the end of the movie.
I couldn't find the lighthouse, although I did see the rock on which the lighthouse appeared in the distance at the end of the film; I think the lighthouse was probably superimposed on the top of the rock. [Thanks to Rick Mills]
I can confirm that the lighthouse was superimposed and only a ground floor was constructed in the location on the moor by the set builders. However, Mick wrote in to say: I'm sure the Smeetons tower lighthouse Plymouth is the one used. Its got all the right surroundings. Have a look on google.
The hide and seek sequence was filmed at a disused part of Highgate tube station.
The flat occupied by the Madden's was the Assistant Director's mother's flat and was in Kensington but I cannot remember the road.
No idea where the school was, sorry.
The rest was filmed at Pinewood.
Charlotte Notcutt (nee Burke) [Thanks very much, Charlotte]
The final scene, when Anna attempts to grab the rope ladder from the helicopter, was filmed a short distance (less than a mile) from Hartland Quay on the North Devon Coast. [Thanks to Anthony Cleary]
I couldn't find the lighthouse, although I did see the rock on which the lighthouse appeared in the distance at the end of the film; I think the lighthouse was probably superimposed on the top of the rock as a special effect or something. [Thanks to Rick Mills]
The School used in Paperhouse was Kingsbury High School in North West London [Thanks to David]

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
