Many city scenes and driving sequences of the show were filmed in Royal Leamington Spa, a small town 15 miles south from the Bucket residence. Leamington Spa is famous for its waters since the 16th century but is is only from the 18th century that a significant amount of wells were dug, public baths were opened and a pump room was built. The town became prosperous, welcomed more and more visitors coming to enjoy the medical benefits of its waters and parks were created for patients to relax. In the 19th century, the fashion of "taking the waters" begun to decline and the pump room became a museum. Beautiful parks along the river Leam and  Victorian buildings are now still here for visitors to enjoy.
