Guide to all the 'Mare of Easttown' Filming Locations

Posted by

Mare of Easttown was filmed in the southwestern area of Philadelphia, in Chester County and Delaware County. Kate Winslet portrays the titular Mare Sheehan, a small-town detective investigating a Twin Peaks-style murder set in the real town of Easttown, Pennsylvania.

The series creator Brad Ingelsby commented in a production video that Easttown is a mixture of several locations in Pennsylvania, where he grew up. The filmmakers wanted to make sure that the feeling of the town and the vibe of the show was specific in many different ways, trying to pick locations that were true to its atmosphere and not just the most picturesque.

The cast with Kate Winslet

The cast also includes Evan Peters as Detective Colin Zabel, Guy Pearce as professor Richard Ryan and Julianne Nicholson as Lori Ross, Mare's childhood best friend, Angourie Rice as Siobhan, Mare's teenage daughter, and Jean Smart as Helen, Mare's mother.

We will be updating and expanding this (almost) spoiler-free report every week as new locations are revealed. Welcome to Delco county and to the most complete guide to the Mare of Easttown filming locations that you can find:

Where was Mare of Easttown filmed?

Easttown police station
Easttown's police station is the old train station on Fleetwood Street in Coatesville, PA. The series opens with several establishing shots of the streets of the town and the scenic St Cecilia Cemetery.

Mare of Easttown house
Mare's house is located at 705 Blue Hill Road in Wallingford. Wallingford is a nice community in Delaware County, located about 9 miles from Philadelphia proper. Her ex-husband's home (Frank Sheehan, played by David Denman) is actually located to the rear of Mare's house at 16 Berkshire Dr.

Delaware County is colloquially referred to as Delco. According to director Craig Zobel, Kate Winslet was the only actor confident enough to go back to her native English accent in between takes. For the cast and crew, witnessing Winslet immediately switch from a Delco accent to her normal accent was an astonishing sight.

American Legion Ogden
The exterior of the bar where Mare meets Richard Ryan (Guy Pearce) is the American Legion at 2630 Ogden Avenue in Ogden. However, one of our readers recognized the interior, shot at the Star Hotel bar in Marcus Hook.

Mare of Easttown is the second HBO series that stars both Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce after Mildred Pierce. Both won Emmy Awards for their roles in the 2011 miniseries.

The gym scenes were filmed at Coatesville High School at 1445 Lincoln Highway in Coatesville. None of the Hawks stuff was on the wall, that was all added in post.

      Yes, the book club scene is filmed in the interior of the Philadelphia cricket club. The exterior I have no idea what it is but the interior is 100% the Philly cricket club.

I think the church is Saint John Vianney in Gladwyne.

The gym scene could not be Coatesville High School unless they cut the size of the bleachers in half, added windows, and changed the hardwood floors and all of the colors from red and black to blue. It looks to me like it is Villa Maria's gym in Malvern.

St. Mary’s Church Lake Ariel PA.

I was in the gym scene, is south Brandywine middle school located in Coatesville.

Why would you think the gym scene is Coatesville? You can drive by South Brandywine school today and see Easttown still on the gym windows.

The outside of the bar in the first episode may be the VFW in Ogden, but the inside is definitely the Star Bar in Marcus Hook.

Does anyone know where the restaurant in episode 3 (where Mare and Richard went on their date) is located?

12- Chelsea R. - May 3, 2021 at 6:33 AM
That church is St. Albans in Roxborough.

      Thank you, it looks very similar but it's not the same church.

Church interior: St Michael's Lutheran Church, 6671 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia. Mare's home: 705 Blue Hill Drive, Wallingford, PA.

Can’t say for certain, but the scene with Richard and Mare in the third episode in the restaurant kinda looks like the Catacombs restaurant in Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy.

      Umm, I'm not sure about this one.

The bridge appears to be the Brandywine Creek Bridge south of Route 1 on South Creek/Chadds Ford Road.

      Thanks a lot, Mary! We can confirm that this is the bridge!

Could the restaurant in episode three be Bube's Brewery? Google images! I had dinner there once... looks like it.

The restaurant scene in episode 3 really looks like the restaurant in the basement of the Chestnut Hill hotel.

The home where the Deacon lives (yellow building with blue trim) looks quite familiar. Does anyone have a location for this?

As far as the Philadelphia cricket club goes, Mares footage is at the Cricket club. Richard's role was recast and his side of the scene was in the same building as the exterior. The outside of the cricket club is a building located on Girard College. The restaurant scene was also at Girard College in the catacombs. I was part of the production.

The apartment building where her best friend lived is in Chester county.

The restaurant where the arrest takes place in episode 2 is the Cascata Caffe in Springfield.
