London Filming Locations: Lara Croft Tomb Raider (2001)

It certainly won’t be remembered as a classic film but ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ (2001) will be remembered. One reason is of course down to Angelina Jolie’s great portrayal of the video game heroine and another is the plot, its depth and the character development! Naturally, I am joking about the latter. Maybe one other reason it is remembered is because of the filming locations.

 

Ta Prohm temple (above) in Cambodia is by far the most famous place which the movie was shot at (which I visited in 2006) but there were also a few scenes filmed in London. Willis Faber at 10 Trinity Court (below) is the mansion of villain Iain Glen and I was very impressed by the look of the place.

 

Just a stones throw from there is the very famous Tower Bridge (below) which Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) rides her bike across on the way to the auction house.

 

On the way back from it she zooms through Leadenhall Market (below) which I went to with my sister just before Christmas as it’s very near to Bank station where she works.

Down in Greenwich is Old Royal Naval College and it’s Painted Hall (below) was the interior of a ‘Venice’ church.
