ULTIMATE Ted Lasso Filming Locations Guide

Are you looking for a complete guide to Ted Lasso filming locations? Then you have come to the right place. As an ex-Richmond native one of my favorite parts of the show is spotting all the Richmond locations that you used to be my haunts. In this guide we will tell you where you can find the filming locations for Ted Lasso and how to get there.

Ted Lasso Filming Locations

Although Richmond FC aka the Greyhounds, the team that Ted Lasso comes to England to coach are a fictional British football team,  the town of Richmond is very much a real place. 

Richmond does not have a football team, so it should come as no surprise that the grounds and stadiums featured in the show are not in Richmond. 

First we will look at the Richmond locations before we look at the football stadiums that Ted Lasso films at. 

Ted Lasso Filming Locations in Richmond

But before we get into the locations themselves how do you get to Richmond? Assuming you are traveling from Central London you can get a fast train to Richmond from Waterloo Station on Southwest Trains. 

Otherwise Richmond is also the terminus for the District Line Underground line, on one of the west bound lines, and of the Overground line on the west. Just be sure to check out the destination board before boarding as there are several branch lines. 

It take around 30 minutes to get to Richmond from central London. 

Richmond Green

Richmond Green is the large green open space that features heavily in Ted Lasso. It is the place that Beard and Lasso have coffee every morning and where young Shannon plays football. 

It is a great spot for a picnic in Richmond so you could put this on your list if you plan to visit in summer.

The Prince’s Head aka The Crown and Anchor

Ted and Beard are often see drinking at the Crown and Anchor in the show. However in real life this pub is known as The Prince’s Head and overlooks Richmond Green. 

I will be honest, it is not my favorite pub in Richmond to eat at, though there is nothing wrong with it if it is convenient on your itinerary. However I love going for a drink at this pub. It is especially great in summer whne you can grab one of the outside picnic bench tables. 

The pub is only used for exterior shots, the interiors are actually filmed in a studio however the interior is very similar to that of the show. 

Paved Court

If you are facing the Prince’s Head and look to your right you will see the Paved Court. This is the street where Ted lives. It is a great little boutique shopping street with a lovely hat shop. 

You will find some of the shops on this street actually sell Richmond FC Greyhound hats which are great souvenirs for Ted Lasso superfans! 

Also nearby shops that are worth looking in at are the Alligator’s Mouth, my favorite children’s book store in London (for more kids books set in London ideas click here) and Danieli’s gelato. 

Richmond Hill

When Keely is dress for a photoshoot as a lion she is at the top of Richmond hill. Though a slight walk out of town it is worth it for the amazing view of the River Thames. 

Also I love the Roebuck pub at the top of the hill for lunch or just a drink. 

Richmond Theatre

The theatre is Richmond is actually the backdrop for Rebecca’s fund raising ball. It is literally a couple of minute walk from the station so convenient to drop by.

Richmond Bridge and River

When Keely and Roy go on their first date they are down by the river with Richmond Bridge in the background. 

WE love going for a stroll along the river as a must do in Richmond. 

Football Stadiums featured in Ted Lasso

AFC Richmond Home Ground

The greyhounds home for AFC Richmond is also known as the Dog pound in the show. However ardent football fans will recognise it has Selhurst Park – the home of Crystal Palace who funnily enough Richmond played in the very first episode of Season one of Ted Lasso.

This stadium is located in South London but I wouldn’t recommend doing on the same day as visiting Richmond.

Instead I would do a tour of the stadium or go to see a game at this lovely stadium on a different day of your London itinerary

Closest station: Selhurst, Norwood Junction or Thornton Heath mainline stations

Richmond FC Training Ground 

As I said Richmond does not have a football club. Therefore it should be no surprise that AFC Richmond’s training ground is not in Richmond. 

It is actually the home of Hayes and Yeading FC which is quite a way from Richmond itself. It is actually out towards Heathrow and a bit of a pain to get to. 

Closest station: Hayes & Harlington mainline station.

In Season 2 Richmond make it to the semifinals of the FA Cup. For this the team go to play at Wembley. While we never see the team on the pitch, they do stand on the sidelines. 

Wembley is a great place to watch sport in London but if no games are on you can always take a tour of this historic stadium. 

Other places featured in Ted Lasso

London Bridge

When Ted and Beard get off the plane, they ask their driver to make a detour. And it is quite the detour. 

Richmond is close to Heathrow so they basically drive into the centre going straight past Richmond. 

Ted stands in front of the Lord MAyor’s building to view London Bridge, not Tower BRidge as it is commonly mistaken for. 

Closest station: Tower Hill underground or London Bridge mainline station


If you want some of the Ted Lasso Season 2 filming locations then your best bet is to head to the Richmond adjacent town of Twickenham. 

Twickenham isn’t serviced by the London Underground but is the next stop along from Richmond on the Mainline train via Southwest trains. 

Twickenham is actually used many times of the show. 

First when Keeley and Roy take Phoebe for a hot chocolate they sit on a bench with the famous and iconic Eel Pie Island in the background. 

Eel Pie Island is a famous for its recording studio and shows and bands such as Rolling Stones have played there. It is worth heading over the bridge and having a wander. 

It is also used when Rebecca and Nora go shopping in Series two.  The Dolls of England shop they stand in front is not real but is actually home to Mojo Boutique in real life. 

  • Closest station: Twickenham mainline station

Rivoli Ballroom

While the exterior shots of Rebecca’s fundraiser are held at Richmond theatre. The interios is filmed at the Rivoli ballroon in Brockley. 

It has amazing 1950s decor and still hosts events today. 

If you are tv and movie buffs you may recognise the ballroom from the Muppets film and The Avengers too! 

Closest station: Brockley mainline station


For the away game in season one the team visit Everton near Liverpool. However absolutely zero filming was done in the north. 

In fact the Everton Stadium was substituted with images of the Fulham stadium, Craven’s Cottage, in London instead. 

So don’t make a visit North just because of Ted Lasso. Though there are plenty of other reasons to visit Liverpool. 

Closest station: Putney Bridge underground station
