Reggie Perrin's Station
The station comedy legend Reggie Perrin would go to work from.
Location: Norbiton Station, Coombe Road West, Norbiton, Lo, KT2 7AZ
Description: At the heart of West London's commuter belt, Norbiton Staion was famously used as a location for the British sitcom The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin starring Leonard Rossiter.
Every day Reggie would trudge to work here, sit opposite the same annoying chap on the same train. The futility of it all!
Reggie's home town in the series was actually called Climthorpe.
