Meanwhile parts of Weston-Super-Mare – just up the road from Bristol – were also used for filming, along with the nearby village of Uphill. “And he whole-cloth created all the houses you see close-up, and then we augmented that with those few shots that you see which are CGI which were shot in a place called Clevedon, that has a beautiful sea wall. For the exterior of this grand creation, the suitably splendid Dyrham Park was borrowed, the baroque home built by politician William Blathwayt in the south of Gloucestershire at the turn of the 18th century and previously seen in The Remains of the Day (1993), a 2011 episode of Doctor Who and 2014 wartime drama The Crimson Field.
Beyond newspaper-titillating sex scenes, the story of young country girl Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) and her arrival in the coastal resort town of Sanditon brought an air of changing times that the production picked up and ran with. The studio was also home to most of the building interiors, some of which are very grand indeed. Much of this is about the series’ use of real locations with extensive set building and CGI in the creation of the town of Sanditon. Sanditon continues on ITV1, Sundays at 9pm.

We also see the wilder coastal features of Sand Point, a natural peninsula a little further up the coast. The new production, which airs on ITV1 at 9pm on Sundays, is set in the small Sussex seaside fishing town of Sanditon. It stars Rose Williams as Charlotte, while Theo James plays the charming Sidney Parker.
While CGI helped to enhance this pretty seaside town’s existing period buildings, a full-sized street set was built at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol, home to both Poldark and Wolf Hall, where a building site could be accommodated alongside shops and daily life (and which could also double for London scenes). Sadly, for those enraptured by the charm of Sanditon and hoping to visit, the picturesque Sussex town is entirely fictional. Sanditon was always going to require an element of set building, as is often the case with continuing drama productions of this size. “A lot of it is a set that was built by our magnificent production designer, Grant Montgomery, who did everything from Peaky Blinders to Death Comes to Pemberley. Other scenes were filmed at Bristol’s Bottle Yard Studios, where sets were used to create the actual town of Sanditon, as well as the scenes which take place in London and the interiors of Lady Denham (Anne Reid)’s house. © 2020 Associated Newspapers Limited. However the seaside scenes were filmed on the west coast of the country – with Brean Beach in Somerset being used to recreate the 19th Century seaside resort.
This seven-mile stretch gives us the memorable sequence in Episode 1 with horse-drawn bathing machines, though swimming scenes were shot in the more predictable conditions of the Marine Lake at Weston-super-Mare, another great 19th-century resort town.

Speaking to the Radio Times director Olly Blackburn explained: ‘It was all filmed on the West Coast near Bristol, because there isn’t an existing seaside resort left that isn’t full of Boots and car parks and stuff.’. James Medd, Freelance writer covering music, film and TV, travel and society, history and literature. Sanditon, the town in question, is actually a fictional place inspired by the seaside resorts which were becoming increasingly popular at the time Austen penned the novel. In the novel, Sanditon is probably based on Worthing, where Austen spent time in 1805, but for the screen it is mostly the small town of Clevedon overlooking the Bristol Channel, which went through the same expansion into a resort we see in the show, eventually reaching its peak in Victorian times. The property, which has also been seen in Doctor Who and period drama The Crimson Field, is managed by the National Trust and is open to the public for a hefty £13.50 entrance fee. The series stars newcomer Rose Williams as unconventional Austen heroine Charlotte Heywood, and her relationship with love interest Sidney Parker (Theo James) after she moves to the titular fishing village which wants to become a seaside resort. When not serving as filming locations, both are open to the public as museums, if you are truly looking to complete your Sanditon pilgrimage. And we then reconstructed our own regency town.”.
