Lucky Cat Shop

183 Upper Dock Street
Wales, NP20 1DG

Exteriors and Interiors for The Lucky Cat Emporium were shot on location in Newport, Wales. 183 Upper Dock Street was completely transformed for its appearance onscreen, with a repainted shop front and fully stocked interior. The shop is currently occupied by Glamour and Glitz.

Upper Dock Street itself was also decorated with strung Chinese lanterns, and the green bollards on the street disguised to match the red decor of the actual Chinatown in central London. Filming on the street lasted five days in April 2010.
