I haven't seen this discussed much. It seems to be a pretty integral part of the film and the location will likely have huge ramifications for the plot of the third film. Any ideas?

I'm assuming it's in America, not England, simply because James Cromwell is an American actor, though it's possible he can just put on an accent. He certainly does a well enough southern accent for an Angelino.

From a sheer storymaking viewpoint, it would have to be in the South in some bayou/swamp area since that would be the best place for dinosaurs to adapt on the American mainland. The only question the state. Louisiana is a possibility since JW was filmed in that state. Then there is Florida which is rich in invasive animals-monitor lizards, pythons, even king cobras and Nile Crocodiles, which are part-time maneaters.

My guess is Florida because of how they might want to make an analogy to invasive species. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if it was in some other Southern state.

Damn you guys are right. My dumb ass read they were filming in London and automatically assumed the character would be non American. My brain connected the wrong dots. I assumed he came from the same place Hammond did. 

Although I suppose that's still possible.

He most likely was born in the U.K., but like Hammond, from what we know, he winded up finding a new home in the U.S.A.

If you look at the set pics of the manor, the geography may hold some clues. The home itself and the gate are all surrounded by tall, evergreen/pine trees. Reel Tours Hawaii posted some pictures today of Claire filming a scene set amongst similar looking trees. Her wardrobe was different from what we've seen her in for the rescue mission scenes. I take that to mean it's possible those scenes are mainland scenes near Lockwood Manor. Those type of trees would definitely look at home in places like Florida or Louisiana.

Remember the hand puppet video that Colin and JA posted? Many mentioned the background looked very Sorna-ish. It was uploaded during the time they were shooting at the Lockwood set. If you recall, Spielberg filmed the majority of the Sorna scenes from TLW in the forests of Northern California. There are tons of those tall evergreen trees in Northern Cal. Anyone want to guess where Colin Trevorrow was born, raised and lived until heading off to NYU film school? San Francisco.

Keep in mind, they also built part of the Main Street set at Pinewood, too, and will be digitally introducing background plates to make it look like it's on Oahu. They've also built part of Main Street on Oahu, and will likely be doing a lot of background plates there, too. With digital technology, these days, they can make anywhere look like anywhere. Even your own namesake, NOLA, where they built the whole Main Street set for the first movie, had digital backdrops. Heck, they even played with which backdrops they wanted to have while the movie was being promoted.

I think it's in California somewhere as the trucks the Dinos were being transported in had California number plates.

Interesting you mention that scene. My wife and I are just behind and to the side of Zach and Gray. We just wanted to be in there somewhere, but ended up being easily spotted in all of the trailers and Super Bowl spot. It was a fun day.

It was described as Owen's camp so it could be anywhere...

some sort of location with a temperate climate, such as Northern California, would make sense based on the vegetation on the set.

Either some other island near Five Deaths or on the US mainland (Florida, Louisiana, California).
I just realised, that Lockwood manor sequence might be some iteration of first novels sequence of raptors raiding the tourist building.

I want to say somewhere in Europe, maybe Germany or Poland (yeah they didnt film there but yknow thats the art of filmmaking). Either that or close to San Diego/InGen's former headquarters.

Looks like Lockwood Manor is indeed in Northern California.  From Jurassic Outpost's story on the behind the scenes video:

Northern California?! We're going to have dinos REALLY in the redwoods! Also, the ambience of that manor totally looks like some of the homes I saw when i visited the Redwoods a few years back...

It was sorta obvious to me I guess but it seems redundant with the recent Planet of the Apes films being based there.

I was totally wrong. I had placed the manor in the UK for whatever reason.

I think the location is perfect. It fits perfectly with the lost world aesthetic.
