The creators of The Larkins have attempted to retain the authenticity of the classic novel, even down to the filming locations.

Here's a look at where it was filmed…

Where is The Larkins filmed?

While The Larkins was filmed in the Kent countryside, the new show didn't include Buss Farm in Puckley, which was the original farm used in Darlings Buds of May.

The creators decided to use an alternative farm for filming, for unknown reasons.

Areas surrounding Kent, including West Peckham, Underriver, and Eynsford were also used to film specific scenes for the series.

Faversham also features heavily in the series, with the town's Market Place undergoing a complete 1950s transformation.

The Chase star Bradley had also been spotted at Walpole Bay Hotel in Broadstairs in costume, and filming crews were also seen in parts of London and Surrey.

Flanchford Farm in Reigate and a primary school in Betchworth are among the locations that the series is believed to have been filmed at.

The team behind The Larkins chose to keep the show authentic by filming it mainly in Kent, ensuring it stayed as true to the original novel as possible.

Speaking about filming the new show, Bradley previously said: “The joy of shooting here in Kent is the fact that this is where the books took place, so you get an infinity with it and you get a real feel for it.

"I think the farm we’re working on has a good couple of hundred, three hundred acres maybe, it’s beautiful. The interiors are the true inside of the farmhouse, it’s so lovely.”

Providing further insight into the decision, executive producer Sophie Clarke-Jervoise said: “We wanted it to be in Kent because the novels are set in Kent. We wanted these lovely rolling hills, farms in the background, it’s just gorgeous, we’ve been so lucky.

“We did look at other locations options but we just kept coming back to Kent because it has that authenticity of the novels.”
