Where was The Peripheral filmed?

The Peripheral divides its story between two locations and its filming therefore took place on both sides of the world in London in the United Kingdom and in North Carolina in the United States.

Filming for the series began on May 3, 2021, and ran for six months until November 5 later that year.

Production began in London with locations in the UK capital including the exteriors of Buckingham Palace, the Gherkin as well as Trafalgar Square.

The other half of The Peripheral’s narrative takes place in North Carolina, and many locations across the state also feature.

One of North Carolina’s main locations is the town of Marshall in Madison County with the town hall, The Depot on Main Street, Back Street, Redmond Drive, and Blannahassett Island all present during the series.

North Carolina production also took place in Asheville and Weaverville in Buncombe County, while Burnsville in Yancey County and Sylva in Jackson County were also used.
