Where Was The Longest Night Only Fools And Horses Filmed?

The Longest Night was first screened in September 1986. In the episode, Del Boy, Rodney and Uncle Albert get escorted to the managers office on suspicion of theft. However, its all a setup. Once in the office, the supermarket is held up at gunpoint with all three set to be witnesses to the robbery. However, in typical Del Boy style, not all goes to plan. But where was The Longest Night Only Fools and Horses Filmed?

The interiors of the managers office were filmed in a BBC London Studio, however the exterior scenes and the scenes on the shop floor were filmed in a Co-Operative Supermarket. The Supermarket doubled as Top Buys Superstore for the episode.

The Co-Operative Supermarket used was on High Road, Leytonstone. The supermarket closed some time ago but the premises is still trading, currently as a Matalan. If you fancy a visit, its 829-839 High Road, Leytonstone E11 1HH.
