Oooh!  I want a t-shirt that says that!  They have license plate frames on E-bay that say I'd rather be watching...Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and a couple other sayings.  I want those also!

think they probably filmed the scene of tea with Lord Bromfield inside
the Club.  As you can see, there is a bit of Parliament in my shot of
the yellow checkpoints above that is similar to what we see out the
window over John Rhys Davies' shoulder:'
I always thought they were in "Simpson's on the Strand". What you can see of the room looks the way I vaguely remember it

Well, being on the Strand wouldn't get you quite the same angle of Parliament, I don't think. I have no idea for sure where they filmed that scene, though. I was only guessing because the angle was similar and it certainly would have been convenient for them to use the Athenaeum Club for more than just exterior shots (and costume changes?).

'Well, being on the Strand wouldn't get you quite the same angle of Parliament,'
If you look at the two sites on Mapquest - it doesn't seem impossible.
But, after all these decades, I wouldn't swear to it.

I tend to think that Big Ben would block the view of the Victoria Tower if you are to the northeast of Parliament where Simpson's is, and that is what we see so clearly over Lord Bromfield's shoulder in the scene. Without going inside either location and looking out the windows, I don't think we can know for sure...or unless someone who was there when they filmed tells us.

Because of the upcomig Photobucket issue, I copied the pictures in this thread to Tapatalk so they're now part of the post and don't require a 3rd party provider.
No other content was change and links already broken weren't fixed.
