All I Know About Love is a new seven-part coming-of-age drama series based on Dolly Alderton’s memoir of the same name
The series pays homage to female friendship as the four women try to survive life in their twenties.
Emma Appleton plays Maggie, Bel Powley plays Birdy, Marli Siu is Nell and Aliyah Oddofin os Amara.
When Birdy gets a boyfriend, her friendship with Maggie is threatened and the two worry if their platonic love for one another can coexist with their romantic love for others.
The brutally candid portrayal of the life of a woman in her 20s living in the country’s capital is complemented by the vibrant filming locations that serve as the show’s backdrop.
Where was Everything I Know About Love filmed?
In the series’ opening scene, Birdy meets Street, a cool and collected heartthrob, on board a train bound for London.
However, it appears that the actual station where they disembark and share their first kiss is Manchester Piccadilly, which has acted as a replacement for a London station.
One of the more comedic scenes of the series was filmed at Deansgate in Manchester. The scene saw Maggie and Birdy donning inflatable pig costumes in a plaza surrounded by restaurants.
The road hadn’t been closed for filming, leading some viewers to think the two stars were actually handing out leaflets.
Parts of the series were also filmed on a set at Manchester’s Space Studios in West Gorton, which is five minutes from Piccadilly Station.
Other projects filmed at Space Studios include The Bay, Our Girl, The Stranger and Season 15 of Dragons’ Den.
As the series is set in Camden, much of the filming was done on location in Camden Town.
The four friends are seen in the first episode walking down Inverness Street, with the iconic Big City Comics Store in the background.
Birdy also spends a lot of time near Camden Lock and in one picture the bridge over the lock can be seen in the background.
Also in the first episode, after a night of drinking, the four women head to Primrose Hill and watch the run climb while enjoying the magnificent panoramic views of the London skyline.
No series filmed in London would be complete without a view of the River Thames, and many scenes throughout the series were filmed on the banks of the famous river, with prominent London skyscrapers rising in the background.
Liverpool’s iconic Royal Albert Dock also features briefly in the series when in one scene Birdy sits on a bench at the dock and makes a phone call before walking along the other dock.
When is Everything I Know About Love on TV?
The series will air on BBC One from 10.40pm, with future episodes airing weekly at the same time.
For those who don’t want to wait, all seven episodes are now available on BBC iPlayer.
