Where was Netflix series Heartstopper filmed?

Heartstopper came out on Netflix in April and, since then, the LGBTQ+ teen drama has stolen the hearts of thousands of people. The Alice Oseman adaptation tells the story of Charlie Spring and Nick Nelson, two completely different teenagers who end up falling in love.

Fans called the British eight-part show Netflix 's best series ever and are eagerly waiting for a second season to be confirmed. Starring Joe Locke as Charlie and Kit Connor as Nick, Heartstopper also features Olivia Colman, Stephen Fry and Game of Thrones' Sebastian Croft. Heartstopper is so popular that review website Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a very rare 100% rate approval.
