The Repair Shop has become one of the most beloved shows on British TV so it’s no surprise it is returning for season 13.

In the show hosted by Jay Blades, antiques, furniture, and other items that look worn or would otherwise be thrown away are revitalised by professional blacksmiths, carpenters, furniture-makers and fixer-uppers.

It has managed to leave fans in tears on many occasions, including an incredible transformation of boots worn by prisoner of war in World War II.

The shop has even welcomed royalty with King Charles III paying a visit to mark the BBC’s centenary.

But where is the actual Repair Shop featured in the show? And where do restoration experts such as Suzie Fletcher and Will Kirk – plus beloved host Jay Blades – meet to film the series?

Here’s everything you need to know about The Repair Shop’s filming locations…

Where is The Repair Shop filmed?

There’s only one key filming location for The Repair Shop – a museum in Sussex.
