Night Time Tour, that night 8pm

Phil Mitchell is in Bridge St Cafe trying to convince Kathy he did not sleep with Nadia Borovac and lies to her. And Sanjay Kapoor cannot resist a piece of his sister in law Meena Mackenzie while Gita Kapoor is away. But she is coming home tonight, oh dear.
Birds Eye View of Walford
Walford as seen in a birds eye view, showing Walford locations that are mentioned frewuently but are a distance from Albert Square. Albert Square, Bridge Street, Turpin Road and George Street is circled blue and the red circle is Cafe, Victoria Road. Walford West Tube Station is on Walford High Street.
While the backlot used for filming the show has the police station behind the cafe in Bridge Street, in the fictional show itself, Walford Police Station is a walk away from Albert Square. It has never been stated that Victoria Square, Walford is actually behind Bridge Street and Turpin Road, so the model has it a few streets away from Albert Square.
The exact location within Walford of Walford West Tube Station has also never been explicitlly stated but the likeliest location is the high street so the model has it situated there. Spring Lane, Walford, has never been geographically pinned down as to how far it is from Albert Square but it is not far away, in this model it is off Victoria Road, near No 55 Victoria Road aka Pytchley.
