Where is Hollington Drive filmed?
Viewers of Hollington Drive love the beautiful grounds that are the heart of the show.
Theresa and Helen live in an unnamed part of the UK, but the ITV series is actually filmed in Wales.
Several iconic locations have featured on the show, including Hang Fire Southern Kitchen, in Barry.
They also shot scenes in the nearby Sanatorium Park in Canton.
Other recent TV series in Wales include Sex Education, Hidden, Keeping Faith and The Pembrokeshire Murders.
Is it a real street?
Real life Hollington Drive is located a few miles from Cardiff.
The perfect suburban street is located in a subdivision in Cardiff called The Mill.
The estate includes large houses and a green environment, and was built just a few years ago.
The production team used the interior of several houses on the estate.
Some residents moved, while others stayed at home and were able to watch the filming.
Speaking about the location of the show, writer Sophie Petzal said, “I always had a very clear picture in my head of what this street would look like.
“I wanted something brilliant, without being too cartoonish or silly.
“I wanted it to juxtapose with the dark underbelly of history, with detached houses that looked genuinely beautiful and idyllic but not recognizable from a specific part of Britain like Manchester or Bristol.”
She continued, “He has white houses that look comfortable and ambitious.
“Overall, it sounds compelling and inviting, even if the subject matter is dark and a bit twisted.”
