The Trainspotting Hotel



The Trainspotting Hotel

The hotel at the climax of Danny Boyle's Trainspotting film.

Location: 26-30 Craven Road, Paddington, W2 3QB

Description: While most of Danny Boyle's Trainspotting takes place in rather insalubrious parts of inner city Scotland, Renton (Ewan McGregor) and the boys do venture down to London at the end of the film.

It all heads here - to a drug deal in this, the Royal Eagle Hotel in Bayswater. On the way to the deal, Sickboy (Jonny Lee Millar) leads the quartet over a zebra crossing on Craven Road in a parody of the Beatles' Abbey Road cover.

At the Royal Eagle Hotel (this was all filmed prior while it was derelict and prior to a refit) they meet drug dealer Keith Allen and sell him their heroin for 16,000 before heading down to the pub to celebrate. Renton leaves the hotel when he runs off with all the cash.

The filming inside wasn't here, it was actually filmed in a hotel back in Glasgow.

The five grand Victorian houses which make up the Royal Eagle Hotel have since been totally renovated into a popular 3-star hotel.
