Will The Grand Tour Be Set In Just One Location?

Plans show they might be recording all the studio segments in Great Tew.

2y ago


According to the Oxford Times, plans have been put in place for a mobile film studio to be set-up in Great Tew, near Chipping Norton. It has been confirmed that it was put in place by Chump Productions, the production company owned by the trio and Andy Wilman, and the company behind The Grand Tour.

The plans have shown that the site is being held for 13 weeks. And this begs the question - why so long?

During the first season of The Grand Tour, the tent stayed in each location for a much shorter period of time than 13 weeks, which makes us wonder if they are going to be staying in just one location for the entirety of filming the studio segments.

This seems plausible after Jeremy's health scare shocked us all with its severity and if we look further into the plans, it becomes much more believable.

The plans show that there will be filming once a week over two five-week periods. That makes up for ten episodes of the estimated twelve, and also leaves another two for a double-episode special. So unfortunately for some people, it looks like it fits.

How do you feel about The Grand Tour... not touring? Will you be disappointed if they don't come to your country? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you to Sharon Dunsford for bringing this to our attention!

  • I would rather see them in one place and do more seasons of the show and be healthier than travel the world and only last two or three seasons.

    • Let's be honest. This probanly isn't going to run more than 3 or 4 seasons anyway. By all accounts, James had had enough. They all made all the money they would ever need, and 2 to 3 seasons proves the point of the show. Which was to tell the BBC to...

  • I don't care where they are as long as they are healthy and continue to provide us with their insights and hilarious antics. None of this would be an issue if Mercedes put out a new bonkers black edition every year.

  • I support whatever decision they choose to make. I'm quite fond of all three of these dopes, and I'd rather have them healthy & happy for a long time, than seriously risking health for a few minutes of air time. If I already had a ticket in hand for a show I'd be a little sad, but the chances of that happening were already vanishingly small, so it's no real loss personally.

    Travel is a glorious part of the show overall, but it's only one of its many charms. Be healthy & well, guys, and take just the right amount of risk.

  • I dont think it really matters what is in the "Giant Window" behind them. The films are shot all over the world anyway
