Only Fools and Fibs...

Nelson Mandela House from 'Only Fools And Horses' - stunt double

Location: Harlech Tower, South Acton, W3 8TZ

Description: It seems that all along Del Boy was selling us some dodgy gear!

Indeed, Only Fools And Horses, the programme that is now comedy fokelore amongst the British population has a small secret to tell. All the time that Del Boy, Rodders and Uncle Albert were parking up the Reliant outside Nelson Mandela House in Peckham...they were in fact somewhere else!

The exterior shots of the Lambeth tower block had a stunt double in West London - Harlech Tower in South Acton. And if you fancy taking in this construction steeped in fame, jump on the E3 bus from Acton Town.
