Where’s Call the Midwife filmed for BBC? – Series Film Locations

Where do they film the BBC TV series Call the Midwife?

During series 1 and 2 of the popular drama, the main filming location was St Joseph’s Missionary College in Mill Hill, London. The large building which even features its own chapel, is now better known to viewers of the show as Nonnatus House.

However, prior to the filming of season 3, the large site was sold and is now to be redeveloped into a high-end housing estate. This real-world drama partly led to the 2013 Christmas Special plot, where they discover an unexploded bomb close to the convent, causing residents to evacuate the area.

As a result, most of the indoor scenes are now filmed using specially built sets at Longcross Studios in Surrey.

Meanwhile, the majority of outdoor scenes are still shot at the Chatham Historic Dockyard and Waterloo’s, Theed Street.
