Bond in Motion has been wowing visitors for the past nine months, and it is about to close down, so be sure to catch it if you haven’t already.
This exhibition is the largest collection of official James Bond vehicles to be displayed in London, and it is all in honour of the series’ 50th anniversary. After a successful run at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum in 2013, this display features a series of snazzy and gadget-ridden vehicles that have all appeared in the James Bond movies. Visitors will be able to come up-close-and-personal with the Aston Martin DB5 from Goldeneye, the Lotus E spirit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me and the Little Nellie gyrocopter from You Only Live Twice.
When walking around the cars, you will get the chance to learn more about the original chase sequences that they were involved in, the stunts that took place and even the history of the vehicles themselves, so you don’t need to be a spy-fan to appreciate this day out.
Bond fans will also enjoy the wide array of film memorabilia that will also be on display, such as the Bell-Textron jetpack from Die Another Day, the tanker chase storyboard from License to Kill and Bond’s evaluation report in the latest movie in the franchise, Sky fall.
The exhibition is open daily and tickets will cost £14.50 for adults, £9.50 for children and £38 for a family ticket – note that kids under five can go free. Bookings can be made in advance online on the official website.
Note that you have only until December 31st to catch the exhibition, and with it being a busy time in the capital city, you are going to want to book your London hotel as soon as possible.
