Travel Guide

Bradfield

Bradfield is a fictional town in West Yorkshire. Despite there being a suburb of Sheffield called Bradfield, this is not it since it’s a small and rural suburb.

However for a real journey in Bradfield, it would actually make more sense to head north past Sheffield and Bradford of course as these two cities gave Bradfield its name after all.

The TV series was actually filmed in the North East of England in Newcastle and the surrounding areas – Gateshead and Durham to name but two. This was as the star of the show – Robson Green himself – wanted to keep the filming and work in the North East.

The city of Newcastle has changed since the filming however as one building in particular  – the old Bank of England in Pilgrim Street has now been demolished
