Where was Safe filmed
Posted by
Safe is a 8-episode series from Netflix, about the mysterious disappearance of the daughter of Dr Tom Delaney. They live in a wealthy closed community, where some of its inhabitants have a few dark secrets to hide.

This thriller was written by crime author Harlan Coben, also creator of the British television drama The Five. The cast is led by Michael C. -Dexter- Hall, Amanda Abbington (Mr Selfridge, Sherlock) and Marc Warren (Band of Brothers, Doctor Who). The new Netflix series The Stranger, set in Cedarfield, was also created by the same writers and producers.

  2. The scene in Liverpool is the Walker Art Gallery not the World Museum.

  3. This location isn't mentioned but I think Bobby's apartment was in Beetham Tower.

    1. It's actually not Beetham Tower! The outside of the apartment block is in Media City (Salford Quays), the sign says "Marine Side Apartments" but they're called City Lofts. The scene is when Sophie and Tom are driving past the gates in episode 8, around the 23 minute mark. 94 The Quays in Salford. Then you can see the Metrolink in the background (the line runs in front of the building with the canal on the other side).

  4. The image regarding the chase in episode 3 is Liverpool Moorfields station. The trains are wasMerseyrail. The opening scene is indeed Manchester Piccadilly, but only passing through the entrance/guards to the platforms. It then switched to Moorfields.

  5. Pretty sure the police station exterior is the old police station in Heywood.

  6. Isn't the road where long lost daughter and Pete reunite the same road in Killing Eve, where Oksana and Eve have the stare down before Oksana bails into the woods?

  7. Some of that (over little bridge) is near the axe and cleaner near Dunham Massey- going over the canal
