'Moon Knight' Filming Locations: Where in London was the Marvel Show Shot?

Moon Knight follows Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac) as he learns he is the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, and has another identity: Marc Spector.

Steven lives and works in London, and the first two episodes of the Marvel show are filmed in and around the British capital.

Here is everything you need to know about the places Steven is seen visiting, and which locations the Marvel series mixes up.

Where in London Was 'Moon Knight' filmed?

Steven works at the British Museum, at least it's supposed to be there, but Londoners will know all too well that the location shown on the Disney+ show isn't the same spot.

The character is seen walking to work via Trafalgar Square and going up the stone steps to the museum, which is in fact the National Gallery.

In Episode 2, after Steven's other half, Marc, destroyed one of the bathrooms in a fight, Steven is reprimanded by a staff member wearing a uniform with the words "National Art Gallery" on it, but the real location is called the National Gallery, and the National Portrait Gallery is next door.

It should also be noted that both the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery hold art exhibitions and not Egyptian artifacts. Those antiquities are all in the British Museum, which is based in Bloomsbury, near Tottenham Court Road.

In Episode 1 Steven is seen taking a London bus along what appears to be the Strand, which brings him to Tottenham Court Road station, something that is impossible since the two locations aren't near each other.

Also the station itself is not the real Tottenham Court Road tube station, but a copy of it, given there is no bus stop directly opposite the entrance on Oxford Street.

In Episode 2, Steven meets Marc's wife Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) and she rides with him on her motorbike to his home, passing by Vauxhall Bus Station.

Later, when Steven is picked up by two police officers, they drive through Westminster on the opposite side of the River Thames from the London Eye, which can be seen in the background of the scene.

Rather than bring him to a police station the officers take him to meet Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) in an undisclosed part of London. The scene was likely filmed somewhere else entirely and made to look like the capital.

Hawke has previously said some of the show was filmed in Budapest, per The Hollywood Reporter, so these scenes may have been shot there rather than in London.

At the episode's climax, Marc, now in control of the body rather than Steven, runs across the rooftops in his Moon Knight garb to evade a jackal sent by Harrow, and he jumps toward the Tower of London.

Marc ends the fight in a courtyard of a church that seems to have been made to look like the All Hallows-by-the Tower, which overlooks the Tower of London.

Moon Knight continues on Wednesdays on Disney+.
