Lara Croft Gets Statue in London

Twenty-five years of Tomb Raider history should, of course, not pass unnoticed. That’s why lead actress and intrepid game heroine Lara Croft has been given her own statue in London’s Camden.


The sculpture was placed in Stables Market in the heart of Camden, where Tomb Raider: The Live Experience opens in April. That new attraction will take fans of the franchise on a journey, with teams of up to eight people joining Lara Croft on her quest for a powerful artefact.

Along the way, they must escape from a sinking ship, explore the jungles of Costa Rica, discover an ancient tomb and – of course – solve the necessary puzzles.

The statue, more than eight feet high, was built in the style of sandstone carving in collaboration with computer game company Crystal Dynamics and Paramount Pictures so that it ‘matches the look and feel of the new attraction’.

If you happen to be in London soon: tickets for Tomb Raider: The Live Experience can now be booked online and cost £66 per person.
