Where is Kate and Koji filmed?

Kate and Koji was filmed in the idyllic coastal town of Herne Bay in Kent in January 2020.

Herne Bay is located just six miles north of the city of Canterbury as well as 10 miles west of the famed seaside town of Margate.

The ITV series is set in and around Joan's Café on the Herne Bay seafront. In real life, the venue used for Joan's Café is Herne Bay's 'Traditional Pie & Mash' café and ice cream parlour which is located in between Tivoli's family amusements arcade and the Clocktower kebab shop.

The Kent town of Herne Bay and the neighbouring city of Canterbury have played host to far more than just Kate and Koji.

Productions such as Rustom and Got to Dance have also passed through but the biggest of the lot is Disney's The Little Mermaid remake which is reported to have filmed in and around Herne Bay in October 2019 according to KentOnline.

ITV's Kate and Koji gets underway at 8pm on Wednesday, March 18th with the series expected to run for six episodes, concluding on April 22nd, 2020.
