There are passing references to various places in the capital including Bayswater, where Charles Ryder has his home, and the East End, the scene of the scuffle between the special constables and the strikers during the 1926 General Strike. However, most of the London scenes occur in the more upper-crust areas: Mayfair, Belgravia, St. James's and Green Park, where Marchmain House and the Ritz Hotel are situated.
