Finding Buckingham Place

Posted by robbieonsea on 14 December 2015 in English (English)

Recently I have be watching The Prisoner on DVD; and having been to Portmeirion this year to the No.6 Festival, I thought I'd find out where Buckingham Place (as shown in the opening credits of The Prisoner) actually is.

With an eye to view the street as well, I turned to the all seeing eye of No.2^H^H^H, I mean Google. However Google infuriating thinks I mean 'Buckingham Palace, London' and centres the map there, no matter how I enter 'Buckingham Place, London' even when itself lists 'Buckingham Place, London' as one of the options after typing Buckingham Place (and listing Buckingham Palace separately).

OSM to the rescue!

Entering in "Buckingham Place, London" into the search box on the OSM website leads one to the one and only result of Buckingham Place.

Interestingly Buckingham Place is rather near Buckingham Palace, less then 1/4 of a mile away.

Sadly Mapillary's search is much worse and returns no relevant answers, but currently there are no images of this road anyway.

Be seeing you.

Location: St. James's, Mayfair, Westminster, London, Greater London, England, SW1Y 4LB, United Kingdom
