Where was After Life filmed? Ricky Gervais’ Netflix series location guide

After Life is the new Netflix series from Ricky Gervais looking at how we cope with grief.

Gervais character Tony is a local reporter who is struggling to cope with his wife’s death.

He’s adopting a new attitude, he can say or do what he wants.

The cast is full of familiar faces including David Bradley, Penelope Wilton, Ashley Jensen, Tom Basden, Tony Way and Diane Morgan.

The series is set in the UK so you’ll probably recognise a few of the locations.

The main filming was done in a couple of towns, Bristol, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

Hemel Hempstead


The crew filmed in Hertfordshire in the square. This is where the Tambury Gazette is set. The main building is 48 High Street close to the Old Twon Hall and St Mary’s Church.

The businesses you see are all real too including Jordans Antique Centre and the pub.



The Coffee Cup from episode two is in the High Street in Hemel Hempstead.

The street where Tony lives is in Vale of Health, a hamlet with a pond.


Camber Sands

In episode three Tony takes his dog for a walk to the beach. Hemel Hempstead isn’t near any beach, it’s nearer London.

According to Atlas of Wonders, the location we see on screen is Camber Sands Beach in East Sussex.

Beaconsfield


A few scenes were also filmed in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. The care home is the Old Town Registration Office, the graveyard is also in the Old Town by St Mary and All Saints Church.
