Berkeley Square, London
Berkeley Square is a town square in the West End of London, in the City of Westminster. It was originally laid out in the mid 18th century by architect William Kent. The square is named after the noble Gloucestershire family of the same name whose London home, Berkeley House, had stood nearby until 1733.
In Arthur La Bern's source novel, Brenda Blaney's club is situated in Berkeley Square. Hitchcock considered shooting at the Clermont Club (44 Berkeley Square) but eventually chose to film the scene in the Green Room at Pinewood Studios.
