Spanish Banks beaches in Vancouver were also sparked. Ladner United Church is located at 4960 48 Avenue in Delta. Certain regions of Surrey are also used for filming a few scenes for the series. There were also reports that a grocery store was used in the Vancouver filming.
Ladner Village was built on the banks of the Fraser River as a fishing village. “We needed to find a building that had three empty storefronts that we could completely dress the way we needed to,” a crew member revealed at the time.

Is The Hospice In ‘The Midnight Club’ Real?
The Midnight Club takes place at the fictitious Brightcliffe Hospice in the early 1990s. The name of the facility in the show has been altered from the book, which was Rotterham Home. Even Rotterham Home isn’t a real place mentioned in the book.
“The hospice has a very colorful history,” The Midnight Club‘s co-creator, Mike Flanagan, said. Adding, “There’s a rumor … about a living shadow that prowls the halls of Brightcliffe. Some of the kids speculate that it might be death itself. And some of the kids, especially toward the end of their lives, talk about this thing, getting closer and closer to them.”
Lastly, another location was spotted in the series and it’s Central Park at 3883 Imperial Street.
