'The Visit' was shot on location in Wales, Edinburgh, Slough, Wooburn Green and Beaconsfield for all exterior shots and some interior scenes. The main setting for the film, Ansa's flat and communal hallway leading to her flat, were built on a stage including an SFX rigged flooded bathroom set and a flooded miniature set at 1:5 scale. The build was completed in four weeks, with an eight day shoot on 35mm film.
