ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
You are going behind the scenes of one of the longest-running and most successful movie franchises of all time.
See how truth is stranger than fiction as you discover how the adventures of most famous spy in the world imitate the extraordinary life of Ian Fleming. As you immerse yourself into the cloak and dagger world of espionage, you’ll discover the more hidden parts of London, the true ‘City of Spies’. We’ll be looking into the cars that James Bond drives and the suits that he wears. These upper-class districts are packed full of Bond locations, the perfect chance to add to your spy knowledge.
It wouldn’t be a day in the life of Bond without a visit to ‘Q’. You’ll also have a session booked at our select London gun club for some target practice using a variety of weapons. Are you a better shot than your fellow agents? A little healthy competition will find out…
On to St James’s. It’s a well-heeled neighbourhood where you need to look and SMELL the part, but don’t worry, we’ll show you how to get the authentic James Bond scent in a beautiful shop frequented by Royals and movie stars.
Finally, a Vesper Martini – shaken, not stirred – in a bar frequented by Fleming and Winston Churchill. The ‘House of Spies’ is the perfect place to end your day, with some delicious food to accompany your cocktails. During this fascinating day, you will learn the real stories behind the world of the most famous Spy in the World, as we take you through the London scenes where Bond was born and immortalised in celluloid.
This adventurous, immersive and fascinating experience is a memorable day out for any Bond fan.
Start your day with a ‘mission briefing’ at a top-secret Whitehall location with full breakfast while your ‘Handler’ prepares you for the day. Get to Bond with your fellow fans and find out your ‘mission briefing’ while discussing various Bond Spy trivia. At the end of a day of discovery and adventure, relax and take in the atmosphere in true ‘00’ style with a Vesper Martini, shaken, not stirred, and a light lunch – you’ve earned it! (Mocktails /other drinks are available)
