Bond in Mayfair

Start off in Mayfair, the birthplace of Bond creator Ian Fleming, where you can see a blue plaque erected at 22b Ebury Street, Fleming’s home between 1936 and 1941. Pop in for a cocktail at one of the numerous hotels Bond might well have visited in this area.

Then head down to Regent Street and enjoy afternoon tea at The Langham hotel, Europe’s first “Grand Hotel”, and the central location in the 1995 Bond epic Goldeneye.

Head over to North Greenwich and The O2, where you can climb up its roof and discover iconic views of London from one of the key venues used in another Pierce Brosnan flick, 1999’s The World Is Not Enough. Head on inside and see a concert, visit an exhibition or relax in one of The O2’s many restaurants and bars.

Then transport yourself onto a Thames Rockets boat and speed along the route taken by the secret agent in 2015’s Spectre as you experience a Bond-esque exhilarating thrill-ride.

Best views of James Bond film locations

Safely back on dry land, head up Western Europe’s tallest building, The Shard, and enter its famous observation deck at The View from The Shard. Here, you can look out over London and see many of the sites that have featured in Bond films, including City Hall, Westminster Abbey and of course Thames House, the headquarters of MI5.

Cultural James Bond London attractions

Take in some culture at the National Gallery and, if you find yourself in the Gallery’s Room 34, you will be in the same room where Bond first encountered Q in 2012’s Skyfall.

At the other end of the Strand, Somerset House is a venue for all things artsy. And, come Christmas, it even hosts an ice rink. Marvel at its grand interior courtyard, a location masquerading as St Petersburg in Goldeneye.

Dine and drink like Bond

If all this action has left you with quite an appetite, head to Rules Restaurant in Covent Garden, for luxury cuisine, and dine where the likes of Bond stars M, Q and Moneypenny have all dined, most recently in Spectre.

Or head to Dukes London hotel, where Fleming was inspired to write in a dry martini (“shaken not stirred”, of course) as Bond’s favourite drink. 

Bond tours and exhibitions

If you’re looking for a Bond tour or exhibition in London, there are many options available to you. Try Brit Movie Tours and the James Bond Walking Tour, where you can enjoy a guided walk taking in all the major Bond locations, including those from the latest No Time To Die film.

Alternatively, spot James Bond film locations from the river with Thames RIB Experience’s Ultimate Spy Experience and hear tales about Fleming's famous character from its guides during a thrilling trip.

Finally, snap a selfie with Daniel Craig, Sean Connery or Roger Moore at Madame Tussauds as you marvel at wax figures of all six James Bond actors.
