Is the Building from The Circle Real? Where to find the Cool Apartments from the Show
Netflix’s popular reality show, The Circle,
is once again pitting competitors against each other to see who’s the most popular influencer of the bunch.
And once again, show fans from all over the world will be left wondering...
Is The Circle building real? Or are those colorful apartments just catfishing us?
In real life, the apartment building (with its quirky, colorful apartments) is located a continent away, in England.
The entire show was filmed in a newly developed residential building in Salford, UK - right outside of Manchester.
The entire cast of the show travelled to England to film the reality series, and they stayed at the brand new Adelphi Wharf development,
a 206-unit apartment building that comes with a private residential gym, landscaped rooftop gardens, and waterfront views.
The building was first home to the British TV series of the same name, with each international version keeping it as a filming location.
Which means the cast of The Circle US, The Circle UK, The Circle France and The Circle Brazil all lived in the same building.
You might be wondering whether there’s an actual circle slapped on the building, like we see on the show. And apparently, there is one!
On the outside of the building is a large, lit up circle made of a roughly 82-foot diameter aluminum track with LED lights strung through and around the circle.
One room in the building has also been reserved for what the show calls “the testimonial room” — where players go after they are blocked to create their goodbye video to the remaining players.
The rest of the building’s 206 units have continued to be occupied by residents (the actual homeowners) while the filming took place.
