There’s only one key filming location for The Repair Shop – a museum in Sussex.

Episodes are recorded in the Court Barn at the Weald and Downland Living Museum in Singleton, West Sussex.

Singleton is a charming village in the Lavant Valley. It’s in the district of Chichester, and is just a short five or so miles from the city of Chichester.

Singleton’s open air museum has been running since 1970, and has been used as the show’s main filming location since it began in 2017.

It’s usually open to the public for visits – the Court Barn accessible for fans of the series to mosey around.

However, due to tier four lockdown rules, currently visitors can only access the museum’s 40-acre grounds. The Barn will reopen again when restrictions ease.

Keep an eye on the museum’s official website for further information.

When and where can I watch The Repair Shop?

Though you can’t visit The Repair Shop itself right now, you can still watch it on TV.
