Birds Of A Feather Filming Locations

Here are some of the key Birds of a Feather Filming Locations. Many of these have taken a lot of time to track down, so please credit this page/site if you wish to use this information anywhere.

Dalentrace Filming Location

Dalentrace was the original home of Darryl and Tracy Stubbs. Portrayed to be located in Brian Close, Chigwell, Essex, within the program, the actual exteriors of the house were shot on a private road located in Buckinghamshire. The physical Dalentrace is located on Camp Road, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. The street is also home to a few other properties used throughout the series. The house is almost the same as it was during filming except with the additional of an attic conversion.

Dorian Green’s House Filming Location

The exteriors for Dorian Green’s house were also filmed on Camp Road, however the house used was not next door to Dalentrace but three doors away. I’m not sure if this house was picked as it is substantially bigger to fit in with Dorian’s character, or if the houses next door to Dalentrace did not offer up their houses for filming. Another mystery to solve one day.

Lundquist Kitchens Filming Location

During the original series Dorian was having an affair with a younger man named Luke who worked at Lundquist Kitchens, Chigwell. The exteriors for Lundquist Kitchen were filmed on Pinner, High Street. Pinner was used throughout the series, doubling up as Chigwell town.

Chigwell High Street & Town

Although you would think Chigwell would be used for the filming of this, it was in fact Pinner that was used in the show. Here are a few scenes from the show and their locations in Pinner.
