Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.
The Carlton has a splendid Egyptian facade (one of only two in London, the other by the same architect at the now demolished Carlton, Upton Park was destroyed by bombing in the war). Strangely, the interior of the building is is a French Renaissance style. It has now been a bingo hall longer than it showed films.
