NEIGHBOURS has been a telly favourite for 37 years, set in Ramsay Street, Australia.

The Aussie soap uses a real suburb for Ramsay Street but will you be able to visit the set once the show ends?

Where is Neighbours filmed?

Neighbours is an Australian soap, set in a fictional area of Melbourne called Erinsborough.

Fans across the UK are sad about the iconic show ending and hoping to get one last glimpse of Ramsay Street by visiting the sets.

People are so keen to live in Ramsay Street that real-life applications for jobs at Lassiters have been sent in from the general public, with one woman sending in a full CV to apply for a job on reception.

Filming locations are scattered across the Melbourne area so this is where Neighbours become good friends.

The outside of the houses are filmed in a little cul-de-sac called Pin Oak Court.

This real life suburb in Vermont, Melbourne is home to actual people who let the crew use their lawns.

Ramsay Street is named after the original character, Max Ramsay, who appeared in the show’s pilot episode on 18 March 1985.

Jack Ramsay, Max's grandfather, was the Mayor of Erinsborough which explains why the street is named after him.

Global Television Studios

Most of the filming is done in the studio in Nunawading, which has a purpose built set containing the Lassiters and the lake.

The set includes all the external buildings such as Lassiters and Harold's Cafe.

Showrunners even decided to make their own lake for filming consistency which exists at the studio.

Neighbours interior shots are filmed in the studio, including bars, restaurants and people's homes.

While the outside of the houses on Ramsay Street might be real, the insides are not.

For trips to the hospital the exterior is the entrance to the production office in Nunawading.

Lots of notable storylines have seen key Neighbours characters pass through the doors of Erinsborough Hospital.

Austin Hospital, Dandenong Hospital, Maroondah Hospital and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre have been used for filming.

These have been used for interior filming too, to save the team building an expensive hospital suite set every time.

For Erinsborough High School, the team has used Blackburn English Language Centre in Burwood East as well as Coburg Senior High School as the face of the building.

Once again interior shots were filmed in the studio.

Can I visit the set after Neighbours ends?

Tours are available to members of the public wanting to see the authentic filming set and take photos at their favourite locations.

Tours depart late morning and last around 3 hours, which include a visit to Ramsay Street and meeting a Neighbours star (past or present).

Sadly, the official website says tours will not be operating past the show's finale.

After July 31, tours will be closed and they are already fully booked up.

The site reads: "We regret that – due to staffing shortages – we are not able to add any further availability."

Fans can hope to grab a ticket with the instant booking feature if a gap becomes available but the site says "don't hold your breath".

When is Neighbours on and how can I watch it?

The Neighbours final episode airs on Friday, July 29 in the UK.

Australian fans have already seen the big send off, and warned fans to prepare for tears.

The show airs at 9pm on Channel 5.
