The Jurassic World 2 House & Isla Nublar Filming Locations

Posted by Ra Moon

The sequel of Jurassic World picks up four years on from the events that destroyed the theme park in the 2015 movie. On this occasion, the Nublar Island's volcano is about to erupt, jeopardizing all the remaining dinosaurs.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was filmed on Oahu Island, Hawaii, and in the United Kingdom. The stunning Lockwood house is actually an amalgam of several locations.

Where was Jurassic World 2 filmed

Spanish director J. A. Bayona achieved critical acclaim with The Orphanage (2007), The Impossible (2012) and the fantasy drama A Monster Calls (2016). It's in the second section of the movie where Bayona uses his talent to take the dinos to a new darker and scary level.

Welcome to the internet’s ultimate guide to Jurassic World 2 Fallen Kingdom’s filming locations.

The Jurassic World's Isla Nublar

Jurassic World Island
In the first part of Fallen Kingdom, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue some dinosaurs from an incoming volcano eruption.

All the Jurassic movies were filmed in Hawaii. They boast the spectacular landscapes of the Nāpali Coast in Kauai island.

The rugged ranges of this Hawaiian wonder, used in establishing shots and combined with digital imagery, are the inspiration for Isla Nublar.

Isla Nublar
However, all the on-location filming for Fallen Kingdom was done on Oahu Island.

The exterior of the radio tower bunker and the scenes of the dinosaur stampede with the Gyrosphere were filmed at Kualoa Ranch, a very popular filming destination in Hawaii.

Jurassic World Isla Nublar
A large set that took more than three months to complete was erected at Police Beach near Papailoa Beach.

Here were shot the remains of the destroyed main street of the park (although the mountains in the background are from Kualoa Ranch).

The high-tech base camp in Isla Nublar was built nearby, in the land of Dillingham Ranch, also in the north of Oahu Island.

Nublar Island
Owen is looking for Blue in the jungle at He'eia State Park. Some more filming took place nearby, in the He’eia Kea pier in Kaneohe Bay.

The Jurassic World House

The manor museum bones hall
The second part of the film is set in a very different context: the prehistoric animals are coming to civilization.

Many scenes for Jurassic World 2 were filmed on the soundstages of Pinewood Studios in England, including Lockwood’s library (pictured), the underground hall where the auction takes place, the dinosaur containment facility of the mansion, Dr. Wu’s laboratory, the control room, Maisie’s bedroom, and Lockwood’s bedroom.

Dinosaur walking over the roof and cargo ship's hold
Other sets constructed at Pinewood include the interior of the large cargo ship Arcadia and the rooftop of the Lockwood Estate.

As the production needed extra space for filming, some scenes were shot in a Business Centre in Langley (Claire’s Dinosaur Protection Group, Owen training baby raptors, and the scene of Claire and Owen with a sleepy T-Rex).

Jurassic World House
The facade of the Lockwood Manor was built in an army training ground in Hawley Common, near the village of Minley (Hampshire).

The set is visible in the Google Maps satellite view. Also, the state's loading dock, where sedated dinosaurs are delivered before the auction, was shot here.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Mansion
However, not all the Lockwood Manor is fake; some shots without actors were filmed in Cragside, a Victorian country house near Rothbury in Northumberland.

Where was Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom filmed?

Jurassic World Lagoon
The Jurassic Outpost revealed that the opening sequence, when a tech guy opens the gates to the Jurassic World Lagoon, was recorded very close from Hawley Common at Hartland Park in Farnborough, at the former Pyestock Jet Engine test site.


Bourne Woods in Surrey
The Location Guide reported that the house that Owen is building in the Californian countryside near a lake at the beginning of the film was filmed at Bourne Woods in Surrey, England.

The Arcadia boat
A few scenes with the Arcadia boat were filmed at Glen Mallan Jetty on Loch Long (Argyll and Bute), not far from Glasgow in Scotland.

Some more scenes were shot at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire and at East Berkshire College near London.

Behind the scenes Gyrosphere Ball
According to film director J. A. Bayona, one of the film's biggest challenges was the scene where Claire and Franklin jump from a cliff inside the Gyrosphere ball.

The first part was filmed at Kualoa Ranch. Then a small roller coaster was built for the sequence when they fell off. The underwater section of the scene was shot in a water tank in Pinewood Studios.

  3. I've just been to visit Cragside in Northumberland (National Trust) and that house and estate were used as Lockwood Manor. Non of the actors filmed there, just the grounds and outside of the house.
