Filming for the latest series of The Great British Bake Off has moved from Berkshire to Essex
The 11th series of The Great British Bake Off - due to hit our screens on 22 September 2020, it has just been announced - was filmed at a new location this year... in Essex!
Until now the hit TV show had been filmed at Welford Park in Berkshire, but Down Hall Country House Hotel is now the new home of the baking blockbuster.
The famous tent remains the same, but this year’s hopefuls travelled to the grounds of the luxury hotel in Matching Green to do battle over the baking trays.
Series 11 has also seen another change, with Matt Lucas joining the team as the new second host after Sandi Toksvig stepped down from the show.
