When is The Great British Bake Off filmed?

The tent gets pitched each April and remains for 10 weeks of filming while the competition gets underway.

This means that the winner of the Bake Off is crowned around June/July and has to keep their secret until the show airs in the autumn.

The Great British Bake Off is filmed over the weekend with judges, contestants, presenters and crew staying in nearby hotels before returning to their other jobs during the week.

Deborah Puxley is the lucky resident of Welford Park where she has lived with her husband (who inherited it) since 1997.

Apparently Mary Berry was particularly fond of the country houses gardens while she was on the show and would stroll around with Puxley 'deadheading the roses'.

Where did the Great British Bake Off use to be filmed?

Up until the show's final series on the BBC, GBBO was filmed at Harptree Court in Somerset.
