Mentmore Towers Street – Revisiting “Eyes Wide Shut” – Google Maps Redux

The orgy in Eyes Wide Shut occurs at a place called Somerton. I read it was filmed partly at Highclere Castle, partly at Elveden Hall, and partly at Mentmore Towers, the gates of which bar Google maps and us (these aren’t the gates in the film). Obviously, Google, for all its power, doesn’t possess the password.
