Where was Bodyguard filmed?

The six-part series was shot in a number of places across the City of London area.

This comes as no surprise as the story revolves around a war veteran who works as a Specialist Protection Officer for the London’s Metropolitan Police.

Considering the story is all about a Home Secretary and a London-based police officer, viewers can expect to see numerous famous London locations.

According to location guide Richard Madden’s character David Budd lives on the Stoneleigh Terrace Estate in Camden.

Some filming also took place in Southwark.

The production team also spent six days filming at the Mid-Norfolk Railway in Dereham.

Richard’s co-star is Keeley Hawes,  who plays Julia Montague, the Home Secretary, said: ““I’m delighted to be working with Richard Madden and once again with Jed Mercurio… Bodyguard is such an exciting project.”
