The Great British Bake Off returns to our screens tonight (March 17) for a Celebrity special for Stand Up To Cancer with a new batch of contestants ready to take on the baking challenges.

Viewers know the importance of the Bake Off Tent which hosts the whole series, seeing all the bakes come to life but you might be wondering where exactly it’s located.

Whether you’re thinking of applying for the show in the future or you’re just curious to know where the white tent is erected, look no further.

Where is The Great British Bake Off filmed?

The Great British Bake Off is filmed at Welford Park in Berkshire and has been since series five of the show in 2014 (not including the two-year Covid period), according to Country & Town House.

The white marquee, known as the Bake Off Tent, is pitched near the Welford Park House and the round-tower church.

Unfortunately, the marquee is only erected for filming purposes and can’t be visited by members of the public.

However, Bake Off fans can now spend time at Welford Park.
