Streamberry building
The Netflix's alter ego company, Streamberry, is headquartered at 100 Liverpool Street building in central London.

Loch Henry

Black Mirror Loch Henry
Located on the west coast of Scotland, Loch Leven, doubles as the fictional Loch Henry.

In this shot, Pia and Davis are on the north shore of the lake, looking towards the Pap of Glencoe mountain (Sgorr na Cìche) near Glencoe.

Waltonville Scotland
As the local press reported, Waltonville's main street was filmed in Inveraray, a town in Argyll and Bute located on the western side of Loch Fyne.

To recreate the bustling town before the tragedy in the 90s, period cars were brought in and vintage signs were added to the buildings.

The Lochside Inn
The exterior of The Lochside Inn pub was also filmed here, at The George Hotel at 1 Main Street.

This family-run hotel is housed in a building that dates back to 1770.

Lochside Inn Waltonville
However, as a Reddit user revealed, the interior was recorded at the Village Inn in Arrochar, a town located near the head of Loch Long.

You can stay at the Village Inn, and maybe meet the real Stuart (David's old friend) for about USD 180 (£140) per night.

Castle Stalker
Castle Stalker, pictured, appears in one of the shots where the boys tell Pia about Loch Henry's touristy past.

This 15th-century tower house, set on Loch Laich islet off Loch Linnhe, was featured as the French castle in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Black Mirror Lake
According to location manager Liam Irving, 18 different locations were used for the episode, including the Falls of Falloch, which appear when Pia leaves the house at night.

This drone shot of Loch Leven, seen from the Ballachulish side, was used in the Streamberry documentary trailer.

Bafta Royal Festival Hall
The Bafta ceremony was held at the Royal Festival Hall in London's Southbank Centre, the same venue as the real British Academy Film Awards.

Beyond the Sea
Black Mirror house
In this episode set in 1969, Cliff's retro-futuristic home is a mansion located in L'Eliana, a small suburb near València.

Built in 1975, this 19,500-square-foot (1.812 m²) boasts large wood-framed windows with curvilinear profiles and an indoor swimming pool.

Beyond the Sea house
David's family home, on the other hand, is an American farm house in the English countryside of Kent, about a 40-minute drive from London.

Set in five acres of meadows, this colonial-style house filled with Victorian fittings is available for rent to film productions.

Beyond the Sea town
The beautiful village where Cliff and Lana go to the library is also located in the United Kingdom.

All the film crew had to do was remove the iconic red phone box and change a few other elements on a street in the historic town of Rye in East Sussex.

Mazey Day
East Sunset Motel
As Sur in English pointed out, the "Mazey Day" episode was filmed primarily in the Malaga province in Spain.

The East Sunset Motel is actually the Jose Carlos Hostel in Puerto de la Torre.

The exterior of the Quagmire Club is a casino next to the Red Dog Cinemas in Puerto Banús, Marbella.

Alpsee Lake
Some stock footage of the Alpsee Lake near Hohenschwangau in southwestern Bavaria, Germany, served as the establishing shot of the mountains in the Czech Republic.

The accident scene was filmed at the Venta El Túnel restaurant located near Malaga.

Emerald Pines Diner
The Emerald Pines Diner was a set built in a town called Ojén.

The Cedarwood Retreat was apparently filmed in a estate between Monda and Ojén.

Demon 79

Demon 79 pub
Both the interior and the exterior of the bar where Nida (played by Anjana Vasan) takes a few shots is the Palm Tree pub in Mile End Park, London.

Opened in 1935, this heritage pub is a Grade II listed building.

"The largest lake in Great Britain, Loch Lomond, doubles as the fictional Loch Henry." - This caption is incorrect - this is not Loch Lomond which is nowhere near the Pap of Glencoe. The loch is Loch Leven.

   Thank you, somehow I wrote Lomond instead of Leven!

That "establishing shot of the mountains in the Czech Republic" had me do a spit-take. It's absolutely hilarious. There are no mountains like that anywhere in the Czech Republic, not even close. The landscape in the foreground would be OK(ish) enough, but the tall cliffs in the, nope.

Also, they somehow went to the trouble of arranging a reasonably Czech-looking scene a bit later, with the correct Police car, correct license plates, and at least two actors speaking actual Czech with no accent... right next to an imitation of a Czech road sign that makes absolutely no sense and contains just random gibberish of random letters (Vssi Blod, which I can only assume was supposed to be something like Vyšší Brod).

Filming is weird ;)

In the Mazey Day episode, where the location is first shown near a lake in the Czech Republic, it looks like a lot of eucalyptus trees (gum trees) and similar scenery to a lot of places here in Australia. My first thought was maybe the Gold Coast?

Does anyone know what building the final scene was filmed in? With the interview room and hallway.
