Poirot's London Pad
Where in London is Whitehaven Mansions, Hercule Poirot's home?
Location: Charterhouse Square, WC1X
Description: A popular question asked of the famous Belgian super-slueth Hercule Poirot is...where in London is Whitehaven Mansions, Hercule Poirot's home as seen on the television series 'Poirot'?
It is found on Charterhouse Square in London. Many buildings surround the square, but the residential building known as Florin Court (known as Poirot's 'Whitehaven Mansions') is located on the eastern side of the park.
The building houses a swimming pool in the basement and a roof garden (as seen on satellite images). Florin Court (and Charterhouse Square) is just North of the Museum of London (at London Wall).
So now you know.
