Where is Holby City Hosptial?

Holby City is set around the fictional hospital of Holby City Hospital. Holby City Hospital is also the fictional hospital where Casualty is set. So you would think, that they are filmed at the same location? In fact, they are not even filmed in the same country.

Holby City is filmed at BBC Elstree studios, and for those of you who remember the earlier Grange Hill Seasons, you should recognise the building. You can view the external holby city set on Google Earth, as shown in the image below.

It is also filmed at the same location as Eastenders.
