Over Christmas, I went on a vacation with some of my family to the UK. We went to Edinburgh, London, and we even went to Loch Ness but the true highlight for me was going to Richmond. I loved Edinburgh for all of the Harry Potter stuff but having the combination of both Ted Lasso and The Sandman filming locations practically 10 ft from each other was amazing.
I love being in filming locations because I can just picture the scenes going on in my head while walking around. Two things that definitely stuck in my head were the relief the pub wasn’t shying away from being the Ted Lasso pub and the Sandman bench. I was relieved because I was afraid that I was going to be that annoying tourist they wanted to ignore but instead it seemed that they were proud of being the pub. I also noticed that they definitely moved the bench for filming the bench scene because we couldn’t get the perfect angle but it was close enough for me.
