Director Christopher Nolan used combinations of Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New York City for his Dark Knight trilogy with Christian Bale, while Tim Burton and Zack Snyder each had more stylized versions of Gotham.

Somerset House, London

Reeves and some of the cast were spotted shooting scenes near Somerset House. The location is listed as one of the official spots on IMDB where The Batman is filming. 

Somerset House is located in central London, right near the River Thames, and construction on the building dates back to the late 1700s. The east and west extensions were added in 1831 and 1856, and the location is now open to the public. It holds numerous events, art exhibitions, and seminars; it also has five cafes and restaurants. Many other films have shot here, including Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey, Jr.; James Bond flicks Golden Eye and Tomorrow Never Dies; as well as the Gerard Butler action film London Has Fallen.

Glasgow, Scotland

Following work in London, Reeves and crew are heading to Glasgow, Scotland, for another major chunk of filming, according to the Daily Record. The report says that Glasgow will be a main backdrop for Gotham City and may give fans a first look at the new Batmobile.
