Arding and Hobbs

Arding and Hobbs is a Grade II listed building at the junction of Lavender Hill and St John's Road, Battersea, London SW11 1QL.[1]

Arding and Hobbs was built in 1910 in an Edwardian Baroque style, and the architect was James Gibson.[1]

Formerly run by Allders (from the late 1970s until the group went into administration and was subsequently broken up and sold) it is now split between a branch of Debenhams department store and TK Maxx retail.

The store has featured in a number of films and television programmes including the 1981 action-thriller, Nighthawks where the shop was bombed and the 1993 Mr. Bean episode, Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean,

In 1993, an episode of Mr Bean, Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean, was filmed at the store, much before Debenhams opened.[2]
