Seen Taylor Swift’s new Kentish Town-set video yet?

Spot the two locations in NW5 in an international epic shot in Miami, London and Tokyo

So, back in October, the media was set alight by zillionaire pop icon Taylor Swift and entourage pulling up into Kentish Town to shoot a few scenes for the promo for new single End Game.

At the time, the rumour was that Kentish Delight – the busy little kebab shop near music venue The Forum – would feature heavily in a 9-hour shoot which took place between 9pm and 6am (with a crew of, apparently, 60 people).

Recognise it? TS on Falkland Place. Still: Vevo

But watch it above, and there’s in fact a poor (ie. zero) showing for the fast food joint (although there is some ‘bab-guzzling later).


Tayls, is however, quite clearly filmed in cute Falkland Place, the pedestrianised backwater that makes a good shortcut to The Pineapple.

And look closely in the London section – as the video is also shot in Miami and Tokyo, with all-star pals including Ed Sheeran – and is that really the Bull & Gate, and its swanky Boulogne Bar?

It is. Eagle-eyed local arty bloke Jamie Firth (@mrjfirth) sent us this screenshot if you need further proof:

Other scenes in the vid show our Taylor on a night out elsewhere in the capital, as well as on the Millennium Bridge and a night bus.

And, as we reported last time, all the locations were allegedly places she has been to with British boyf Joe Alwyn – who was brought up in – you guessed it – Tufnell Park.

Altogether now: “Big reputation…”

Taylor Swift’s End Game ft Ed Sheeran, Future is out now.
