BBC series The Repair Shop has been airing for three years, with the current 2019 season on Freeview TV right now.
However, no matter how many episodes audiences watch and no matter how many times Jay Blades nonchalantly waltzes through the shop, we’re still not convinced the location is real.
Here’s everything you need to know about the stunning Repair Shop 2019 location!

What is The Repair Shop?
The BBC series follows the repair and restoration of various family heirlooms – think treasured antiques such as music boxes, vases and clocks.
TV personality and super-cool furniture designer Jay Blades is the host, with different experts joining the show in each episode.
Until you watch it, you simply won’t understand how much talent it takes to restore antiques!
The Repair Shop 2019: Location
The location for each of the series has remained the same – and it’s like a magical Santa’s Grotto barn!
Sadly, however, it’s not a resting place for Elves and reindeer over December but a museum in West Sussex.
Rob Butterfield, Head of Factual at Ricochet, who produce Repair Shop, said:
Many of our huge pool of experts run their own businesses, but the Weald and Downland Museum (in Singleton, West Sussex), where The Repair Shop is filmed, doesn’t offer a repair service outside the show.
In the case of some items, there are only a handful of people in the country who have the skills to fix them, so we’re lucky to have so many of Britain’s top craftspeople involved. It can get busy at times, with as many as 12 experts working in the barn, plus the occasional appearance of a barn owl.
Visit the Repair Shop!
As Rob explained, you can’t rock up to The Repair Shop and expect someone to fix your damaged goods.
However, you can visit the museum where the BBC series is filmed from Monday-Sunday between the hours of 10:30 am and 18:30 pm.
The museum covers 40 acres and is a beautiful combination of rural homes and buildings in South Downs National Park, featuring a replica Anglo-Saxon hall house and Edwardian tin church.
