Storyline

The music video for the song was not filmed at Penny Lane, as the Beatles were reluctant to travel to Liverpool. Street scenes were filmed in and around Angel Lane in London's East End. The broken sequence of Lennon walking alone was filmed on the King's Road (at Markham Square) in Chelsea. The outdoor scenes were filmed at Knole Park in Sevenoaks on 30 January 1967. The promotional film for "Strawberry Fields Forever" was also shot at the same location, during the same visit.

playful fun
25 July 2018 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

As was the case with the promotional video for 'Strawberry Fields', The Beatles YouTube channel has uploaded this video in pristine HD quality, so I recommend anyone reading this to check it out immediately, because the video accompanying this song really is a lot of fun to watch. It didn't exactly impress me to the extent that the 'Strawberry Fields' video did, but few videos ever have or will, so I need not dig into any further comments on how these videos compare and contrast. Anyway, the song 'Penny Lane' is, of course, a classic, ad the video does it much justice and matches its upbeat nature perfectly, with some slight touches of surrealism and a light sense of humour. The editing is extremely well done and matches the beats of the song and such with near perfection, and the usage of horses genuinely amused me more than I would expect it to. It's an extremely playful video, making it really fit the song it accompanies.
