But just where was the 2021 adaptation of The Girl on the Train filmed? What filming locations did the Netflix movie use?
The Girl on the Train (2021) on Netflix
The Girl on the Train arrived on Netflix on February 26th, 2021.
Netflix’s adaptation tweaks certain elements of the original book and 2016’s film, most notably the fact that this Indian adaptation is mostly performed in Hindi.
Starring Parineeti Chopra, the film tells the story of Mira Kapoor, a recently widowed lawyer who takes the same train journey home each day and fantasises about the perfect life of Nusrat and her husband, a couple she can see from the window of the train.
Little does Mira realise, however, that the couple she watches from the train doesn’t share a perfect life after all.
Where was The Girl on the Train (2021) filmed?
- Netflix’s adaptation of The Girl on the Train was filmed in London and several surrounding towns in South East England.
Despite being an Indian adaptation, Netflix’s The Girl on the Train is more accurate to the original book than the 2016 film as it’s set in London while the Emily Blunt film took place in New York.
Throughout Netflix’s adaptation, we see several key London landmarks pop-up as well as more ordinary locations.
Some of the specific London locations we see throughout The Girl on the Train include Pryzm nightclub in Kingston, St Augustine’s Church in Kilburn, North London Hospital on St Ann’s Road, The Salisbury Hotel in Harringay, Chiswick Cemetery and Greenwich Magistrates’ Court among others.
Outside of London’s city centre, we also see a host of other locations being used including Crawley’s Tilgate Park, Woking, Sutton, Dereham Railway Station and the forest surrounding Kelvedon Hatch Nuclear Bunker in Brentwood.
The Girl on the Train (2021) is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on February 26th.
