The finest TV comedy of all time is of course "Fawlty Towers".
The actual building used in the series was not in fact a dodgy hotel in Torquay (with a sea view of course), but was actually just outside Wycombe (and you would have to use a very powerful telescope to see the sea from there!) in Bucks, UK.
The buliding was located in a village called Woburn Green, near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire and operated as the Woburn Grange Country Club. According to "The British Location Guide" the house was an Indian restaurant, then a nightclub called "Basil's" (oh, wonderfully original).
In an incident worthy of the great Basil fawlty himself the structure was damaged by fire some years ago and was subsequently demolished. Today the location is occupied by eight houses - so not exactly worth visiting unless you are the most hard-core Fawlty towers fan on the planet.
