Rules Restaurant is the oldest eatery in London. Founded in 1798 Rules has been the restaurant of choice for the great and good of London for over 220 years; including Lieutenant Colonel Gareth Mallory.
Used as part of the chase sequence on the London Underground between 007 and Raoul Silva at Charing Cross you will learn how EON worked with Transport for London to create not only an amazing chase sequence, but also the most dangerous stunt in Skyfall.
We will briefly stop in Trafalgar Square before heading into the National Gallery.
The National Gallery is where we meet the new ‘Q’ (played by Ben Whishaw) for the first time. What follows is, arguably, one of the best scenes in Skyfall where Bond and ‘Q’ bond over the need for a trigger to be pulled. But how on earth did they film this sequence in a gallery that is visited by over 6 million people every year? Find out on this 00-heavenly tour!
The Reform Club on Pall Mall has an illustrious history and involvement with the British film industry. Seen in films such as Paddington, Sherlock, and of course the James Bond franchise, the restrictions about filming in this amazing gentlemen’s club may leave you shaken and sturred.
This is where everything gets real! Outside the London home of the British Foreign Secretary learn how the real Mi6 operates under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom’s Foreign Office.
The Mall gives us impressive views of Buckingham Palace, home to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Officially the oldest ‘Bond girl’, Her Majesty shocked the world when she appeared alongside James Bond as part of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. Find out how Danny Boyle managed to persuade the Queen to take part, and how she has been name-checked throughout the Bond franchise.
Admiralty House was where Ian Fleming spent much of the Second World War, working firstly for Admiral Sir John Godfrey the Director of Naval Intelligence before taking on various intelligence roles throughout the war including travelling to America to help establish, what has become, the CIA!
It was Flemings experience as part of the Intelligence community that gave him all the necessary tools and experience to create the greatest spy who never lived, and Admiralty House is the perfect place to tell you how Fleming’s real work inspired and informed the fictional world of James Bond.
Whilst visiting Whitehall we will discuss how Doctor Who has become an integral part of UK culture, and how Harold Saxon became Prime Minister.
From Vauxhall Bridge, you will be able to see the real MI6 Headquarters building. It is here you will learn all about how the real building that houses some of Britain’s real spies came to be used in one of the most popular film franchises of all time.
