Despite being set in 1950’s London, some of Summer of Rockets was actually filmed in Kent.
Crews were seen filming for the series outside the Ropery in The Historic Dockyard Chatham as well as on the upper floors of the Ropery which featured as civil defence training rooms.
The Historic Dockyard Chatham is a pretty popular filming location in Kent, having previously featured in The Man From U.N.C.L.E and Our World War.
Much of the brand new series is set in the beautiful British countryside, which meant a lot of filming took place on country estates around Stevenage.
BBC crews were spotted filming at Benington Lordship Gardens and at a house near Watton-at-Stone in July 2018.
You might recognise the filming locations from another drama, Channel 4‘s dystopian series Humans.
