The Circus comes to Blythe House

As seen in the superb 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' remake

Location: 23 Blythe Road, West Kensington, W14 0QX

Description: Blythe House, a treasure trove of fascinating artefacts from the V&A archives, is the storehouse for the archive of Art and Design, the V&A Theatre and Performance collections and the Beatrix Potter Collections.

It is also a sought after film location.

Not least for the superb way in which it was used in the the 2011 crime thriller remake 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley, and co-starring Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kathy Burke and Ciaran Hinds.

In this simply superb remake, Blythe House was used as the location for 'The Circus'.
