London, as one of the most famous capitals all over the world, hides many mysteries and interesting stories on its own. One of the most famous ones contains code numbers such as 007 and Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as Mi6. Coming from the pen of Ian Fleming and getting famous through film adaptation, James Bond became the most acclaimed secret agent in the world. There are some segments about James Bond that surpass the fiction and become reality. Such is the fact that James Bond is a real name of a person from which Flaming borrowed it to create his character or the fact that Bond is created as a combination of real life spies whom Fleming encountered during his time in Naval Intelligence Division during Second World War.
Moving around the city you can find the traces of real-world espionage and easily recognize Bond’s film locations. The National Gallery (seen in Skyfall), Whitehall (presented in Octopussy, License to kill, A view to kill and Skyfall) Mi6 (standing firm and still after its destruction in Skyfall), and Somerset House (from Tomorrow never dies and Glodeneye) are only few of the attractions connected to world of James Bond and world-class spying.
Portrayed by various legendary actors such as Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig through more than 20 movies, Bond somehow became a legend himself. Staying in London give yourself a task to find out where exactly fantasy meets reality. It will take a couple of hours of your afternoon, but it would be a great fun to follow the footsteps of Mr Bond. In addition, you might even want to finish your search for Bond in the London’s oldest Restaurant drinking Vodka Martini, “shaken not stirred”. Who knows, you might even meet special agent 007 drinking the same right by your side.
