Mostly Manchester, England. If you're familiar with Manchester and you watch carefully, you may be able to recognize some of the landmarks. For example, early on you see the Big Bang monument outside the City of Manchester stadium as a reflection in the car window and, on the rooftop after the party, you can see the big red "palace" sign. There is also a scene under the bridge near the Gmex. The final scenes are shot in Blackpool at the end of the North Pier.
