For 2021 the Great British Bake Off has set up its iconic tent on the lawns of Down Hall Hotel in Essex.

Set in 110 acres of park and woodland, the luxury 98-bedroom hotel and spa was home for the contestants, judges and presenters as they isolated together to film the series earlier this year.

The 2021 season of the Great British Bake Off once again has introduced twelve of the best home bakers in the UK to the show, going on a journey to bake, ice, whisk, beat and knead their way through ten weeks of testing challenges.
