Ginny and Georgia filming locations: where was the Netflix show filmed and set and is Wellsbury a real place?
Ginny & Georgia has proved hugely popular with viewers since its Netflix release, and many fans of the show have been wondering where the show was filmed.
The show follows free-spirited mum Georgia, who moves with her kids Ginny and Austin to a small affluent town in Wellsbury, Massachusetts.
While the series is set in the US, it was actually filmed in Canada.
Here's your need-to-know on the filming locations.
The show was filmed primarily in a town named Cobourg, Ontario, which is about 70 miles east of Toronto.
In August 2019, the town's Twitter account shared some photos of the filming taking place, writing: "COMMUNITY: We are still Cobourg, Canada! Just a fun reminder that @NetflixCanada2 is in town filming Ginny & Georgia. They are touching up some of our Downtown Cobourg storefronts too! 🎨

The Blue Farm Cafe, which features in the show, is actually a gastropub in Cobourg called the El Camino.
A number of historic town landmarks are also visible in the show, including Victoria Park and Victoria Hall.
A number of indoor scenes, such as in Georgia's home, were filmed at Tribro Studios, Toronto.

The town in the show, Wellsbury, is fictional and this is not a real place.
However, Massachusetts does have two real places called Wellesley and West Newbury - which may have provided inspiration for the name.
