Come On Eileen: Filming Location

This is the location where the music video for "Come On Eileen" was filmed.

It is situated at 151 Brook Drive in the Kennington district of London, England.

The song, which was released by the English pop rock band "Dexys Midnight Runners", went on to become the highest-selling British single of 1982. It is also widely considered to be one of the best songs of the 1980s.

In the music video, the band performs outside of this nondescript corner shop wearing denim overalls.

When the lead singer's love interest, "Eileen", walks by, he attempts to talk to her. However, she gives him the cold shoulder and keeps going.

Throughout the video, he continues to pursue her until he finally runs up behind her and "catches" her.

At the end, Eileen joins him outside the corner shop. After putting their arms around each other, they walk off together along Brook Drive.
