5 Ted Lasso Filming Locations In London That You Can Actually Visit

If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to Ted Lasso and the AFC Richmond crew, fear not. Many of the places featured in the show are real-life spots nestled in the charming town of Richmond. Whether you're a die-hard fan or just curious to see where all the magic happened, here's a little sneak peek into the London locations that brought the world of Ted to life with our guide to 5 Ted Lasso filming locations you can actually visit.

The Prince's Head

If you're on the hunt for Ted Lasso filming locations in season 1, we've got you covered. As you wander down Paved Court, make sure to swing by a classic Ted Lasso spot—the pub where Ted and Coach Beard hang their hats. The Crown & Anchor on screen goes by The Prince's Head in real life, and it's got some serious history, clocking in at a whopping 300 years old. Step into a blend of British charm and Hollywood glam as you grab a pint at this iconic boozer. Just don't be surprised if the inside looks different—it's only the exterior that made it to the small screen.

The Prince's Head is a quintessential neighbourhood pub, serving up pints and passion for over three centuries.

River Thames

Get swept away by the charm of the historic River Thames, a picturesque backdrop for many memorable scenes in the show, including Roy and Keeley's first date. The stunning riverside is dotted with beautiful boats and adorned with twinkling fairy lights, adding to the romantic ambience of the already iconic waterway. Follow the path and find yourself in Richmond Park, completing the perfect day out. If you're feeling peckish, nearby Busaba is perfect for a flavourful Thai meal.

It’s easy to see why Roy and Keeley had their first rendezvous at the stunning River Thames.

Richmond Green

Kicking off in Richmond Green, this lush 12-acre space nestled amidst charming historic buildings is where Ted's team practiced their game-winning moves. You'll know this green oasis from almost every Ted Lasso episode, especially as it's where a certain footballer wowed Ted and the crew in season one. It's also a star filming location in seasons two and three, where Roy coaches his niece's soccer squad and Ted grooves to local tunes. It's not just the players who get to enjoy the scenery, though – fans of the show can also take a stroll through these picturesque grounds and channel their inner coach Lasso. Thirsty? Make your way to 144 On The Hill for a swish cocktail or two.

While the actors take centre stage, the backdrop of Richmond Green serves as a character in its own right.

Rivoli Ballroom

Step into the iconic Rivoli Ballroom, a scene-stealer in Ted Lasso's debut season. This legendary filming location played host to the Benefit for Underprivileged Children Gala and Auction, where Ted and the gang made memories and witnessed some major moments, from heartbreaks to budding friendships and even a bit of romance. London's last remaining 1950s ballroom, this seductive venue is like stepping back in time, complete with sparkling chandeliers, plush red velvet walls, and lavish gilt framing.

Natural History Museum

A standout location in Ted Lasso's second season, the iconic Natural History Museum is where Sam Obisanya finds himself in the company of Ghanaian billionaire Edwin Akufo, owner of a football club. Filmed in the museum's famed Hintze Hall, the scene is unforgettable thanks to a rather unexpected guest – a middle-aged, balding Banksy. Come down and admire the very artwork that caught their eye (among a few hundred others). For afters, make your way to traditional boozer Hereford Arms for a refreshing pint in cosy surroundings.

Paved Court

Just around the bend from The Prince's Head, you'll find Paved Court, a charming cobblestone street packed with chocolatiers, boutiques, and cafés. Tucked above these shops are flats, including one belonging to the ever-optimistic coach. Ted's flat, marked as 9 1/2 on screen (but actually 11A), sits snugly here, where Coach Beard often waits with coffee in hand. It's a bustling spot where you can snag some AFC Richmond swag and soak up the Ted Lasso vibe. Feelin' peckish? Head to No 1 Duke Street for an atmospheric sit-down dinner in their gorgeous courtyard setting.

Paved Court is a pretty pedestrian street lined with small businesses, some of which have pictures of the cast in their windows.

Selhurst Park

While AFC Richmond may claim West London as its on-screen stomping ground, its stadium scenes are actually shot at Selhurst Park in South London, the home turf of Crystal Palace Football Club. But the parallels don't end there; Richmond's kit mirrors Palace's iconic red, blue, and yellow combo from the 2018/19 season, and both squads sport animal-inspired nicknames. For a quick bite to eat nearby, make your way to The Store, an atmospheric all-day restaurant oozing with character.

You might not catch Roy Kent or Jamie Tartt scoring goals on game day, but you can soak in the electric atmosphere of Selhurst Park.

SkyEX Community Stadium 

Where in London is Ted Lasso filmed, you ask? In reality, the team's training scenes are shot at SkyEx Community Stadium, the home field of Hayes & Yeading United Football Club. It's where the Richmond crew, including Roy, Jamie Tartt, and Dani Rojas, worked their magic, juggling filming schedules with the real-life football club. Usually hosting Hayes and Yeading United's games, you can catch the action yourself for just £10. Swing by for a match or just soak up the vibes nearby at the high street's resident boozer, The White Hart.
