Filming the Exterior of Selfridges Store
Kent | Chatham Historic Dockyard, Chatham | United Kingdom
The exterior filming of the Selfridges store, while extremely convincing, is not filmed at the real Oxford Street location due to it's always-busy nature. Instead the exterior shots are filmed at Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent, also home to many other filming locations such as Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife, Jekyll and Hyde and Grantchester.
The dockyard is full of cobbled streets and buildings from the Georgian and Victorian era to explore. Features include The Railway Workshop picnic and play, The Victorian Ropery, Steam, Steel and Submarines dockyard story, Dockyard Shop, Wheelwright's Restaurant, RNLI Lifeboat Collection as well as the many events that are available such as the Call the Midwife filming location tours.
You can find more information including opening times and dates at the official Chatham Historic Dockyard website;
We suggest getting in touch to find out what filming tours are available which run at certain times. The nearest railway station is Chatham Station with a connecting bus available to and from the Dockyard. See the official site for detailed information.
