The Walking Dead Filming Locations
The Walking Dead Season 1
The supposed hospital where Rick Grimes woke up after his coma in the first season is the Atlanta Mission administration building and its front yard, where the numerous bodies wrapped in white sheets lay. However, the interior shots from the hospital are not from the administration building, but from Riverwood Studios also in Atlanta. The administration building is located at 2353 Bolton Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA.
Rick, Lori and Carl’s former home is at Grant Park in Atlanta, approximately 20 minutes drive from the Atlanta Mission at 817 Cherokee Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30315, USA.
Also familiar from the first season, and moreover featured on the DVD cover, is Freedom Parkway, also located in Atlanta. Rick Grimes rides a horse along a car-less and deserted road towards the city. The address of Freedom Parkway is Freedom Pkwy, Atlanta, GA 30312, USA.
The first camp with survivors in season 1, including Lori, Carl and Shane, that is surprised by biters during the night, is located in the recreation area Westside Reservoir Park (900 Lois Street Northwest, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA).
The CDC, or Center for Disease Control, where Rick Grimes learns that everyone is already carrying the virus and which is blown up at the end of Season 1, is the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, located here: 2800 Cobb Galleria Pkwy., Atlanta, GA 30339, USA.
The Walking Dead Season 2
Hershel’s Farm, which provides shelter for the group of survivors, is located near the town of Senoia about an hour’s drive from downtown Atlanta, but is privately owned and cannot be visited.
The Walking Dead Season 3
The prison from the third season doesn’t really exist, but was made up at Raleigh Studios in Senoia. Again, access is not allowed.
Also providing a lot of excitement in season 3 was the Governor’s town called Woodbury, which actually exists under the same name and is located in the state of Georgia. However, the scenes from season 3 were shot in the town of Senoia (1 Main St, Senoia, GA 30276, USA), which is just under 30 minutes away and where Raleigh Studios is also located. In addition, if you visit the town, it’s a good idea to make a detour to the Woodbury Shoppe cafe, which features real props from the hit series. Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played the villain Negan, even surprised fans with a spontaneous visit. The cafe is located at 48 Main St LL3, Senoia, GA 30276, USA.
The Walking Dead Season 4
Terminus is also located in Atlanta, occupied by human-eating living beings and later destroyed. A freight yard was specially prepared for this purpose near Collier Metals at 793 Windsor Street Southwest, Atlanta, GA 30315, USA .
The Walking Dead Season 5
After the escape from Terminus, Father Gabriel’s church represents a central hub in Season 5. This church is located right near Raleigh Studios just a minute’s drive away at 285 Chestlehurst Rd, Senoia, GA 30276, USA and can be visited.
Another important place in season 5 represents the hospital where Beth, previously separated from the group, wakes up and spends some time. There she also meets Noah, who later joins the group around Rick. The old Newnan Piedmont Hospital is at 64 Hospital Rd, Newnan, GA 30263, USA.
Newly joining the group is Noah, whose hometown he finds completely destroyed upon his arrival. These scenes were recorded in the town of Griffin, about a 30-minute drive from Senoia.
The Walking Dead Season 6 to End
The community of Alexandria provides shelter for the group at the end of Season 5 and to some extent in Season 6, and is in fact also located in the oft-mentioned town of Senioa, specifically McKnight Dr, Senoia, GA 30276, USA. In addition to the scenes for Woodbury, those for Alexandria were also shot here.
As was the case for the community of Alexandria, the town of Senoia served as the filming location for Hilltop Colony and, according to series logic, is about 30 km away from Alexandria.
The Kingdom of Ezekiel is introduced in season 7 to fight the Saviors together with Rick and Daryl. Scenes there will be filmed at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta (315 Deshler St SW, Atlanta, GA 30310, USA), though it will not be available to visit.
Also featured in Season 7 is the Oceanside Community. Some scenes of this all-female survival group will be shot at Driftwood Beach near Brunswick on the Georgia coast and in the Keg Creek wooded area once again near Raleigh Studios near Senoia.
The scenes for the Scavengers living in the junkyard, like numerous other scenes from “The Walking Dead” series, will also be shot at Raleigh Studios in Atlanta.
The Saviors’ camp, also called Sanctuary, features a large satellite dish and is located not far from the town of Senioa – 8 km to be exact (600 Chestlehurst Rd, Senoia, GA 30276, USA), but is not open to visitors*.

The Walking Dead Spin-Offs Filming Locations
If you stay in the U.S. a little longer, you can take another trip towards Los Angeles, where the pilot episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” was filmed. Later, however, the set was moved to Canada, more precisely to Lower Mainland near downtown Vancouver. The following seasons were shot in Mexico at Baja Studios, which also served as a backdrop for films such as “Titanic” and “Pearl Harbor.”
In a church, the audience is shown the first transformation of a zombie in the series “Fear the Walking Dead”. This church is the former Bethany Presbyterian Church, which was converted into a restaurant. Here’s where you’ll find the setting: 1630 Griffith Park Blvd, Los Angeles, California.
The next filming location is just under 15 minutes by car from the former church. This is the diner at 530 Ramirez Street, Los Angeles, where Nick meets with his friend and dealer Calvin.
The Clark family home can also be found in East LA. It is located just 10 more minutes by car from the diner, at 2051 McPherson Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90032, USA. However, we do not recommend entering the property since it is inhabited.
Another well-known filming location from “Fear the Walking Dead” represents the Sunken City. This is a section of beach that was sprayed with graffiti. A subsequent earthquake gave it the appearance we know today. The filming location is The Sunken City, 500 W Paseo del Mar, 90731 Los Angeles.
