Where is The Circle 2021 filmed?
The Circle is filmed in a set of specially-designed flats in Salford, England.
In marketing for the show, producers describe it as the “nation’s most famous block of flats”.
The Circle apartment block is based in the Adelphi Wharf Phase 1 building in Salford.
The Adelphi Wharf is a new block of 580 developments beside the bank of the River Irwell.

It has a rooftop garden, jacuzzi and a gym.
During the filming of the show, the exterior of the building is fitted with a huge LED circle on the outside.
Flats in the development start at £94,995.
The flats that this year’s contestants are staying in contain a glam kitchen, a double bedroom and a bathroom – and are estimated at around £145,000. Of course, each room in the apartment is fitted with cameras and TV screens.
The interior decor for one room costs up to £4,000.

The show also makes use of a “testimonial room”, where blocked players go to record goodbye messages.
The luxury apartment block has housed The Celebrity Circle, The Circle USA and The Circle series two.
The first series of the original show was filmed in London.
Unfortunately for those keen to get in on the apartment block, all the properties in the development have been sold.
It also features a well-equipped gymCredit: Channel 4
