Location, Location, Location – just where is your favourite UK show set?

We all know it’s all about location, location, location and just as UK viewers are fascinated by American filming locales so likewise are US viewers when it comes to their favourite UK shows. Lets face just where is Bristol to the average American viewer!


So how do Americans – who are fans of these series but might have less knowledge of UK geography – get their heads around where they’re set?

Well, now there’s this. American designer Tim Ritz has mapped out the on-screen locations of some of the best TV shows set in the UK and Ireland, in an incredibly detailed new graphic.

The self-professed “anglophile”, who lives in Washington, said the idea came to him when he was watching an episode of 1940s drama Foyle’s War with his wife Kolleen and she asked: “Where exactly in England is Hastings anyway?”As well as locating The Office in Slough, Poldark in Cornwall, and Pride and Prejudice in Derbyshire, he’s also added some of the filming locations for shows like Doctor Who, which is, of course, set in All Of Time And Space – but is mostly shot in Cardiff…
