EastEnders Street Sign

Contributed by The BBC Collection

EastEnders Street Sign

Albert Square is in the fictitious borough of Walford, in the non-existent postal district of E20 (the latter is incidentally now the name of the soap's new online spin off). It is based on real-life Fassett Square in Hackney, East London.

However, the Square is in reality a permanent set in Elstree Studios in norhwest London, where the drama is shot week in week out. Only the fronts of the houses have actually been built, and the majority of interior scenes are recorded in studios.
