Where is the Great British Sewing bee filmed?

First broadcast on the BBC in 2013, the Great British Sewing Bee sees talented amateur seamstresses overcome challenges to be crowned winners.

The program, created as a spin-off of the format The Great British Bake Off, was presented by Claudia Winkleman for the first four series and then taken to new heights in popularity, with comedian Joe Lycett as the host in 2019.

The show was such a hit that now 12 countries around the world have their own versions.

In GBSB’s seventh series, 22-year-old Glasgow woman Serena was named “Britain’s Best Home Sewer” for creating countless stunning pieces of clothing.

In the eighth series, however, popular host Joe Lycett will step down to focus on other TV engagements, with girlfriend and comedian Sara Pascoe taking over the helm.

One of the key components of the show is the often fascinating locations.

Most recently, series 7 contestants sewed at Trinity Buoy Wharf in Dockland, London, an environment that Judge Patrick Grant loved very much.

He said, “It was a real pleasure to be there. We got to the set just before 7am every day and the sunrises and sunsets were amazing.”

“Having this wonderful view over the Thames from the sewing room can’t help but inspire the sewers. It was a spectacular place to take pictures.”

For the 2021 Christmas Special, however, celebrities competed at a former garment factory called Sunny Bank Mills in Farsely, West Yorkshire.

The locations have changed during the life of the program. The 2019 series was filmed at 47/49 Tanner Street in London, which is next to Tower Bridge, and also hosted Dragons Den.

In 2020 the series was filmed in the heart of London’s historic textile district in Bermondsey.
