Where is The Pact filmed?

BBC ONE'S new thriller mystery series The Pact tells the story of a group of five friends who get caught up in a murder.

The series has been filmed in various locations across Wales so viewers should expect to see scenic landscapes when it airs.

Rhymney Brewery

The Rhymney Brewery in Pontypool is a key location in the series.

It's where characters Anna, Nancy, Louie, Cat, and Tish work.

The historic brewery is still open to visitors and produces ale in the Welsh Valleys.

Merthyr Tydfil

Another beautiful location that the series was filmed at is Merthyr Tydfil popular for its valleys and hills.

Scottish actress Laura Fraser who plays lead character Anna said the locations were "beautiful" and that she "absolutely loved" Wales.

She told Wales Online: "We got to see some of the Welsh scenery in places around Merthyr Tydfil.

"We filmed in two different woods, which were stunning and then most of the other locations were in the studio.

"We did get to see the countryside but unfortunately not as much as I wanted to. It's absolutely beautiful and to me, parts of it look very much like Scotland."


A big part of filming took place in the Welsh capital.

Julie Hesmondhalgh who plays Nancy in The Pact told the outlet that the dramatic Welsh landscape played an important role in the story.

She added that she took full advantage of filming in Cardiff, using Sofia Gardens and Bute Park for her daily walks.

"My favourite thing to do has been hiring a bike and cycling down to the Bay or up to Castell Coch along the Taff Trail through Llandaff Fields," she added.

"It's such a cycle-friendly city with unbelievable amounts of green space, that I could enjoy even in lockdown."
