Skyfall – Broadgate Tower | Bond Hunts Down Patrice

Broadgate Tower London

Address: 20 Primrose Street, London, EC2A 2ES

Set Up:

In Skyfall (2012) Broadgate Tower poses as a skyscraper in Shanghai. It’s here that Bond tails Patrice from the airport, follows him into the building and eventually kills him in a dramatic shadowy-silhouetted fist fight. Filming was done inside the foyer, but the upper levels including the elevator was filmed in Pinewood Studios.

Access denied at Broadgate Tower

You can access the lobby reception area, but it’s well guarded and you’re not allowed to go up the escort without clearance. I’ve made several attempts and written personally to the good folk at Broadgate Tower asking for a day pass and whilst they’re very quick on their response, they have denied me all access.

Wait it’s not finished!

Yes I know this article is thin, I’m currently posting photos only and addresses. Will add more info and recommendations over time. Thanks for your patience and bless your heart.

Help Required

If you happen to know anyone that would be able to grant me access to the building that would be fantastic and I’ll forever bring you chocolates, unlike Mr Mendel. Please message me on Instagram, thanks.

Closest Bond Location: You could check out the Barbican featured in the Quantum of Solace. Or the New Digs of Smithfield Market in Skyfall.
