A few scenes of The Outlaws Season 3 were filmed at Bristol Harbour. The harbor spans 70 acres. Originally a tidal section of the River Avon, it was transformed into the Floating Harbour in 1809, maintaining a constant water level. The harbor features an artificial by-pass, the New Cut, to manage the tidal flow.

Filming of The Outlaws Season 3 also took place in Clifton, an inner suburb of Bristol, England, which is known for its historical significance and affluent status. Recorded in the Domesday Book as Clistone, it became part of Bristol in the 1830s. Clifton features notable areas like Whiteladies Road and Clifton Village. Famous for Georgian architecture, it includes landmarks like Royal York Crescent and Berkeley Square.

The cast and crew were also spotted filming in Weston-super-Mare, often called Weston, which is a seaside town in North Somerset, England, 20 miles southwest of Bristol. With a population of 82,418 in 2021, it developed from a small village into a seaside resort in the 19th century. Attractions include the Grand Pier, Weston Museum, and The Helicopter Museum.

Talking about the experience of filming in Bristol, co-creator Stephen Merchant said, “I was born and raised in Bristol. The show is very much a love letter to Bristol. I love the fact we get to feature different pockets of the city, and in the instance of series three, we are in a city farm. I love showcasing the city. It’s very visual, it’s full of street art, and it’s very hilly which adds interesting depths to the show. Also, the people of Bristol are very welcoming to us.”

Other shows and films shot in Bristol include Bridgerton, Broadchurch, A Discovery of Witches, His Dark Materials, Army of the Dead, War of the Worlds, The Lazarus Project, Being John Malkovich, The Sixth Commandment, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Lark Rise to Candleford, and The Pursuit of Love.
