Come and get better acquainted with Bond creator Ian Fleming on this guided walk. You’ll learn about the people and events in Fleming's life that inspired the characters and plots of Bond. Plus you’ll be taken around Mayfair and St James’s where Bond loves a bit of gambling, personal grooming and guns.
London RIB Voyages
Fancy heading off down the Thames in a speedboat? What could be more Bond than that? The 50-minute tour, via London's famous landmarks, slices through the river at speed on route to Canary Wharf or the Thames Barrier.
Check out some of the locations used in the films such as Room 34 of The National Gallery where James Bond (Daniel Craig) first meets Q (Ben Whishaw) in Skyfall. Craig had to run along the stairs at Westminster Bridge in Spectre, a film that also featured the SIS building at Vauxhall. This building, more commonly known as the headquarters for MI6, has appeared in several films including Goldeneye, The World Is Not Enough and Skyfall in which it was bombed (but rebuilt in time for Spectre). Meanwhile St Pancras station was used for St Petersburg station in Goldeneye.
