MATCH POINT Filming Locations – London, Reading, UK

Woody Allen broke an incredible 28 year streak by filming outside of New York for Match Point. He was offered British funding and decided to decamp to Britain, work with a new crew, and tap into Britain’s vast acting talent pool.

Allen’s idea for the script was originally to be set in Long Island. Moving it to London meant showing a very opulent side of London, as we watch Chris climb the social ladder. It is one very particular slice of upper class London.

There’s many London cliches – Big Ben, London Eye and more. A significant scene uses the Tate Modern. There is also use of a glamorous property in Reading.

Here’s the filming locations for Match Point.

The Queens Club
Palliser Road, West Kensington W14
