London, the capital city of England, is a location Lara visits in Tomb Raider III.

London could also be called Lara's home. According to the original biography, she was born in Wimbledon and still lives nearby in the county Surrey, which is located south of London, where her family owns three estates.

Tomb Raider III

Main article: London Section

London is one of the three areas that can be accessed after completing India.

Lara starts her visit in London at the Thames. The location can be easily placed around St. Paul's Cathedral, which can be seen on the other side. This is on Ludgate Hill, a name we later hear in the third level. Lara's next stop is further to the west, the abadoned underground station Aldwych. According to the name of the third level she is back nearby the Ludgate, however she visits the Natural History Museum in this level, which is even further in the west of London.

In the bonus level All Hallows she's probably not in St. Paul's cathedral, even though this level was originally supposed to take place after her detour to St. Paul's rooftops, but in one of the two churches actually called All Hallows. The church All Hallows-on-the-Wall is more likely as it is closer to the other locations, but to the east, while All Hallows-by-the-Tower, even though it has a more interesting background history, is further away.

She finds the window open. Upon closing it, she senses someone approaching. She's getting ready to strike the new invader only to find that it's Ana, her dead father's girlfriend, who has been looking out for Lara during the last couple of years.
