where is the great british baking show filmed

The Great British Baking Show is one of the most popular reality shows on television. But where does it actually take place?

The show is usually filmed in a large tent on a country estate. But what's the history behind the location?

Welford Park

The Great British Bake Off is filmed at beautiful country estate Welford Park in Newbury, Berkshire. Previously, it was filmed at Fulham Palace and Valentines Mansion in London (seasons one and two) and Harptree Court in Somerset (seasons three and four).

Welford Park was originally a private stately home built in the 1600s. Its gardens feature picturesque gardens, a wild flower meadow, woodland and farmland.

Over the course of the ten-week series, Welford Park's grounds change dramatically as contestants battle it out to be crowned Britain's best baker. For 10 weekends from April, the GBBO tent is pitched on the lawns, transforming the dining room into a Green Room and the visitors' tearoom into production HQ.

Since 2014, the show has been filmed at Welford Park. During this time, the series has been hosted by Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding.

Down Hall

The Great British Baking Show is a popular television series that features 12 amateur bakers competing against each other in a series of challenges. Each week the contestants are challenged to create a different type of cake, biscuit or bread and their baking skills are assessed by judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

The show has been filmed in various locations throughout the years including Fulham Palace in London, Valentines Mansion in Redbridge and Harptree Court in Somerset. Since 2014, however, it has made its long-term home on the grounds of Welford Park in Newbury, Berkshire.

The latest series of the show was filmed in 2021 and a white marquee tent was pitched at Down Hall, a grand stately home surrounded by 110 acres in Hatfield Heath, Essex. It is a popular filming location for the show, with log fires, welcoming sofas and fine furnishings creating a modern-classical setting for the contestants to live in during their time on set.

Fulham Palace

The great british baking show was filmed in two key locations: Fulham Palace (season 1 and 2) and Valentines Mansion (season 3). These are both Grade I historically listed buildings that have medieval origins.

The Bishops of London had a country seat at Fulham Palace for over 1,300 years, and it now flaunts its stately grandeur as a tourist attraction. The palace’s stately rooms house a museum, gallery space and a cafe/bar overlooking the extensive botanic gardens.

Over the centuries, Fulham Palace has seen a variety of architectural styles. The red brick Tudor courtyard and Great Hall are the oldest parts of the site, but it has also been added to in Georgian, Gothic Revival and Victorian periods. A striking Tait chapel is another feature of the palace’s history, and a number of Biblical murals are featured on its walls.

Valentines Mansion

The Great British Baking Show is filmed in picturesque Welford Park, a stunning estate in Berkshire. It's an impressive property surrounded by gorgeous gardens, an apple orchard and a wild flower meadow.

This lovely family attraction is a great place for a day out with your loved ones. There are plenty of activities to get stuck into. Explore the house with a games bag, or take part in the 'House Detective' game.

It's also worth a visit just for the grounds! There's a lake for boating, lots of green space for picnicking and a play area.

It's a wonderful location for a wedding, too, with all of the rooms beautifully decorated. You'll even have a choice of specialist caterers who will cook up a delicious meal for you and your guests.
