Even more bizarrely one of the early episodes had a positioning shot that suggested the house is actually near Farringdon.

Well, Benjamin Street (the street they live in on the programme) is just round the corner from Farringdon. And there are no nice Georgian Terraces on that street anymore.

Do they all get off at Chancery Lane, or was it only Anna yesterday? If the latter, maybe it's coz she only moved into Benjamin Street (AKA Anchor Terrace) at the end of the first episode.

But I suspect it's just poetic licence, as others have suggested.

Oh wow!!!

Look at the building in between Egg and Milly on the last pic. THAT is the old office building that was squatted on the top floors. They held some great parties, and the very top floor ran an illegal late night club (mostly playing jazz), only accessible from their jerry-rigged lift.

Did anyone else here go? If I had known then that things would change so much here, I would have been there every night!

Thanks James. An unexpected reminder of when this area - and its inhabitants - were quite different. :o)

Would you like to go with me?

One scene was Millie & Anna walking along Copperfield Street, another scene was Egg's brother doing yoga in the All Hallows Church Garden, Copperfield Street.

I'm loving the This Life repeats. They're making me very glad I'm not 26 anymore.

I wonder if any of the characters in This Life will still be living in Southwark in the new feature length episode to be screened at Christmas.
