Where was Strike filmed? - Strike Filming Locations

The Strike series is the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowling's crime novels, written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. It tells the story of Cormoran Strike, an old-school private eye and a former veteran of the Iraq war.

The three books of the series The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm and Career of Evil, have been filmed as separate dramas. The seven-episode production stars The Musketeers and War And Peace actor Tom Burke. Holliday Grainger (The Borgias, Jane Eyre) plays Robin, Strike's assistant and secretary.

The locations mentioned in the book are often real and very well detailed. Strike was filmed basically in London. We'll be updating this post as more info is revealed. Maybe you can help us find all the filming locations where Strike - The Cuckoo's Calling was shot:

Strike Location
The Tottenham pub that inspired the book is at 6 Oxford Street (London), although now is called The Flying Horse. For the series the exteriors were filmed in the Duke Of York pub (47 Rathbone St), near the BT Tower in Fitzrovia.

Where is Strike filmed in London
Strike lives in his office at 6th Denmark Street. The crew managed to get the permits to film on this busy street, but the interior was built in a sound stage in West London. Image by Google Maps




Strike The Cuckoo's Calling Locations
Producer Jackie Larkin comments in an interview how hard was to shoot Lula Landry’s apartment, as it was impossible to find all the elements required for this location. So in the end they used five different places to film the building (the loft, the interiors, the staircase and the pool). The exterior was shot in Rutland Gate in Kensington (pictured).

The block of flats at the end of the first episode is in Hackney, near Ravenscroft St.

  1. I would like to know where the last place is with the beautiful windows.

  2. They were on a property show recently, Grand Designs I think. They were built for artists, with accommodation on the ground flour and studios on the first, hence the big windows.

  4. In the Silkworm what was the location for the scenes of the night time rooftop reception with views over the Thames (the last pic on your article). I suspect it was BAT's HQ Globe House at Temple Place WC2. Am I right?

    1. Hi David, I would say that this is the rooftop of the building of some editorial houses (The Orion Publishing Group, Hachette UK) at 50 Victoria Embankment.
