On The Up was a BBC sitcom starring Dennis Waterman as self-made millionaire Tony Carpenter. The sitcom aired for 3 series in the early 1990s. In this post, we take a walk through some of the key, On The Up Filming Locations.
Tony Carpenter’s Mansion
In the comedy, Tony Carpenter lives in a mansion located in the upper-class Esher district of Surrey. There he lives with Maggie, Sam, Mrs. Wembley, and occasionally his wife Ruth and his mum.
Although in the sitcom the On The Up house is located in Esher, the property used for filming is actually located in nearby Weybridge.
The property is located on the private road of South Road, St Georges Hill, Weybridge.
Weybridge doubles as Esher
Throughout the sitcom, Weybridge doubles as Esher for a lot of external filming locations. Such as the Travel shop from the end of series 1.
Dawn, Maggie, Mrs Wembley Dress Shopping
In series 1, Maggie and Mrs Wembley take Dawn dress shopping for a promotional event to advertise Tony’s car business.
Currently, the clothes shop is occupied by a Travel shop.
In most episodes, Stephanie is away at a Private School. However, the location of the private school is actually one of the few parts of the show filmed in Esher.
Claremont Fan Court School, Esher was used as the location of Stephanie’s school.
Tony’s Mum Visiting Coral
In Series 2, Sam takes Tony’s mum to a Coral betting shop. This was filmed on Weybridge High Street. The building is now currently empty.
