The episode featuring Aaron Paul in season 6 was filmed in East Sussex, the ceremonial and non-metropolitan county of South East England. The production camped out in the small town of Rye, specifically The Old Grain Store on the Strand, to shoot several key sequences. They reportedly turned the cafe into a fictional shop called Al's Bait and Tackle, which looks like an angling shop. One of the antique shops in the area has also apparently been converted into a bookstore for the episode.
Other Locations in England
For filming purposes, the shooting unit for 'Black Mirror' season 6 also traveled to other locations in the UK, including Greater London. Besides that, the large village of Crowthorne provides a fitting backdrop for the sci-fi show's typical combination of social commentary and technology. The house, seen in the first episode of the sixth iteration, is located around New Wokingham Road and Duke's Ride in Crowthorne.
Several key episodes of the sixth installment of 'Black Mirror' have been taped across Scotland, including the city of Glasgow and the town of Coatbridge. In September 2022, locals and passersby saw the cast and crew of the anthology series, which recorded several key scenes for season 6 on and around the Main Street of the town of Inveraray. While most of the businesses on the street are decorated with signs, the streets are lined with vintage cars to make it look like the proper timeline of the story.
Province of Malaga, Spain
A significant portion of 'Black Mirror' season 6 was filmed in the state of Málaga, particularly in Costa del Sol and San Pedro Alcántara. Reportedly, in June 2022, the production crew was seen filming several sequences for the sixth season in the town of Estepona and the city of Marbella.
