If you’re a self-proclaimed couch potato like myself, and have spent a SICK amount of your life watching all
14 15 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy… You’ve come to the right post!
Oh Grey’s Anatomy… I have such a love/hate relationship with you. I hate you more than ANYTHING when you kill off every character I’ve ever loved, yet. Here we are, still tuning in every Thursday night.
I recently traveled to Seattle and got to see all of the famous scenes of Grey’s Anatomy come to life. This Grey’s Anatomy Seattle Tour is easily doable in a 3 day weekend, covering all the best Grey’s Anatomy stops in Seattle.
If you plan on making a trip soon, make sure you don’t miss any of these stops.. cue Grey’s Anatomy theme song.
(psssst… I created a 3 day Seattle Itinerary, which includes all of these stops! You can check it out here: 3 Day Weekend in Seattle).
Seattle Ferry in Grey’s Anatomy
What better way to kick off this Seattle Grey’s anatomy tour than the famous Ferry ride across Puget Sound! They film hundreds of scenes throughout the series of the cast on the ferry with the notorious Seattle Skyline in the background.
You can take an $8 ferry ride across the Puget Sound to Bainbridge island! The ferry ride is only a quick 35 minute ride and you can reenact the famous scenes of Meredith Grey looking off into the distance. Plus, hanging out at Bainbridge Island for the day doesn’t suck!
You can easily spend hours wandering Bainbridge Island, spending time on their walking and hiking trails or in their adorable downtown area. The downtown area of Bainbridge is filled with wine bars and trendy restaurants to try out.

Kerry Park in Grey’s Anatomy
Kerry Park is only a 15 minute drive outside of downtown Seattle and you get another priceless view of the Seattle skyline! A lot of scenes, especially from their newest, 15th season, is filmed here.
This park can get crowded, but the park is long and narrow. You can easily get a photo without anyone in the background.
I loved this spot the most because not only do you get to see a famous Grey’s Anatomy filming location in Seattle, but you also get to see the best view of the Seattle skyline!
Intern House in Seattle
Meredith Grey’s “Intern House” where they continue to live throughout all the seasons, is located just a five minute walk from Kerry Park. Nestled in the Queen Anne Neighborhood at 303 W Comstock St, you can walk on the same door step as Meredith Grey, Alex Karev, Derek Shepherd, Izzie Stevens, Cristina Yang & George O’Malley!
Please make sure you are respectful of the house because it is private property. You can easily snap a couple of pictures from the street or bottom of the steps!
Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital in Seattle
Recognize that helicopter pad!?
The famous helicopter / rooftop scenes are filmed on KOMO plaza at 140 4th Ave N. Would you believe this isn’t even a real hospital? Komo Plaza is a shopping center located directly next to the Space Needle.
If you plan on seeing the Space Needle on your trip to Seattle, pay attention on the short 14 second elevator ride to the top. During the glass elevator ride to the top, the employee escorting you up will point out the helicopter pad!
Even though you won’t be able to see the front of Grey Sloan Memorial in Seattle, the rooftop is spot on. Most of the scenes from inside the hospital are filmed in Los Angeles on set.
