On Location

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.

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]

Can you help? Do you know any of the Ilfracombe, DEVON, United Kingdom filming locations used for Paperhouse, particularly lighthouse, paperhouse location? [Please send them in]
