Where is Hollington Drive filmed?

Hollington Drive viewers love the beautiful estate which is at the heart of the show.

Theresa and Helen live in an unnamed region of the UK, but the ITV series is actually filmed in Wales.

Several iconic locations have featured in the show, including Hang Fire Southern Kitchen, in Barry.

They also shot scenes at the nearby Sanatorium Park, Canton.

Other TV dramas filmed in Wales recently include Sex Education, Hidden, Keeping Faith and The Pembrokeshire Murders.

Is it a real street?

The real life Hollington Drive is located a few miles outside Cardiff.

The picture-perfect suburban street is located on a housing estate in Cardiff called The Mill.

The estate features large houses and leafy surroundings, and was built just a few years ago.

The production team used the inside of several houses on the estate.

Some residents moved out, while others stayed in their homes and were able to watch the filming take place.

Speaking about the show’s location, writer Sophie Petzal said: “I always had a very clear picture in my head of what this street would look like.

“I wanted something that felt bright, without being too cartoony or silly.

“I wanted it to juxtapose with the dark underbelly of the story, with detached houses that looked really nice and idyllic but not recognisably from a specific part of Britain like Manchester or Bristol.”

She continued: “It has white houses that look comfortable and aspirational.

“Overall, it feels compelling and inviting, even though the subject matter is dark and kind of twisted.”
