Full description

Zig-zag across central London, from stately Somerset House to the luxury Savoy hotel, Trafalgar Square to Whitehall. Savor sumptuous filming locations and uncover real-life spy secrets. See how art imitates life and vice versa through the lens of Ian Fleming's James Bond and his films.

Start at Somerset House, a filming location for both Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies. Discover how this historic building in the heart of central London was transformed into Russia through clever set dressing and props.

After a short walk to the Savoy, discover the identity of one resident, a secret but well-known spy who was Fleming's friend, and leave shaken and stirred. Next, visit another iconic London landmark, Rules, London’s oldest restaurant. Learn how the site was used to film Daniel Craig’s Bond movie Spectre. Visit locations in and around Trafalgar Square. Then it's over to Whitehall, where your guide will explain how the film crew managed to film securely in the throbbing heart of central London. In Whitehall, listen to your guide explain how Fleming’s work in the intelligence community inspired the world’s most famous fictional spy.

Final stop: the exterior of the MI6 headquarters in London. Discover all that the public knows about the Secret Intelligence Service. Learn how the IRA attacked the building Bond-style, and how the Bond makers managed to get permission to film here.
