Fans of Ted Lasso will be familiar with its west London setting by now, as we follow the titular, former American Football coach as he arrives in the UK to manage fictional football team Richmond AFC.


The series gives viewers a taste of quaint London backstreets as well as the pubs, parks and, of course, football stadiums, but fans may be wondering just which locations the show used for filming.

It's well known that the American cast such as Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt spent time living in London during the shoot, but just where in the capital was everything filmed?

Read on for everything you need to know about the filming locations used in Ted Lasso.

Ted Lasso is set primarily in and around Richmond in west London, with Ted coaching the area's fictional football team AFC Richmond.

The show does of course see Ted and the team travel to other areas around the country as they go to away games, including notable excursions to Manchester and Liverpool.

Most of the shots set in and around Richmond were filmed exactly there, in Richmond, meaning locals or those who know the area will likely have spotted some recognisable areas and landmarks. One of these is Paved Court, which is used as the street on which Ted lives.

Scenes set at The Crown and Anchor pub, which is run by Mae and which is frequented by Ted, Beard and regulars Baz, Paul and Jeremy, are filmed at The Prince's Head pub, which can be found on The Green in Richmond.

Other locations used for outdoor scenes have included Richmond Green, Twickenham Rowing Club and, in season 1, Tower Bridge.

Meanwhile most of the show's interior scenes have been shot at West London Film Studios, which can be found near Hayes and have previously been used for filming series and movies such as Peep Show, Bridget Jones's Baby and The Imitation Game. The charity gala scenes in season 1 episode 4 were shot at Rivoli Ballroom.

Where are the Ted Lasso stadium scenes shot?

There are a number of different real-life football stadiums and grounds which have been used for filming across the series's run so far.

One of the most-used filming locations is the SkyEx Community Stadium near Hayes, which is the home of non-league club Hayes & Yeading United FC, but in the show doubles as Richmond's training ground.

Meanwhile, scenes set at Richmond's home stadium are filmed at the home of Crystal Palace, Selhurst Park stadium, which can be found in Croydon.

Other stadiums used for filming throughout the series include Craven Cottage stadium, the home of Fulham FC, which in season 1 doubled for Everton's Goodison Park Stadium, and Wembley stadium, at which the season 2 FA cup semi-final against Man City took place.
