Where is Sex Education filmed
Posted by
Sex Education is the new high school dramedy from Netflix. The production uses a formula that mixes an American style college, British accents and a look and a soundtrack set in the Eighties (although everybody has got last-generation mobile phones).

The plot revolves around two kids who decide to set up a sex-therapy clinic, to help their fellow students with their problems for money. Asa Butterfield (who also starred in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and The Space Between Us) plays insecure Otis, the son of Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson, known for her role as Scully in The X-Files), who happens to be a professional sex therapist and an extremely open-minded mum. The main cast is completed with rebel badass Maeve (Emma MacKey) and Otis' best friend Eric, performed by Ncuti Gatwa.

Sex Education was filmed in England and Wales, in the beautiful Wye Valley; The series is set in the fictional town of Moordale. Here are the spoiler-free filming locations of this perv Netflix's hit show:

Sex Education school
The high school Moordale Secondary was filmed in the old University of South Wales Caerleon Campus (Newport). This center is now closed and it may be transformed into a large housing estate.

The footpath -and most of Sex Education's locations- are right in the border of Wales and England. The metallic white bridge from episode 5 is Brockweir Bridge.
