James Bond Private Walking Tour of London

Our James Bond Tour is perfect for anyone who is passionate about all things 007. We believe that every tour should be magical, regardless of your age and this tour takes in some of the best Bond locations in London.

Even if you are being dragged along, kicking and screaming, we know that you will leave having learned something and having been entertained, and we hope that by the time you leave that you’ll have had one of the best experiences of your life – one that you will remember long after you’ve returned home.

We lead tours because that’s what we love what we do. Many of our guides trained as performers, and all of us are passionate about the tours that we deliver. As a company we have made a promise that we will never ask a guide to lead a tour that they weren’t interested, engaged and enthusiastic about because this would compromise the quality of your experience; and we want everyone – including the people who work for us – to enjoy every second of every tour.

4. Trafalgar Square

We will briefly stop in Trafalgar Square before heading into the National Gallery.

5. 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!

6. The Reform Club

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.

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.

9. Admiralty House

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.
