This well-presented exhibition of classic cars, planes and submarines from the movies which make up the James Bond franchise is now open for business in Covent Garden, and if you have any interest in the films or the vehicles, I recommend you pay a visit.
Whether you are interested in the classic films of Connery, Moore, Lazenby, Dalton and Brosnan, or the recent reboot with Daniel Craig, you will find memorabilia from each era here, the vehicles and props themselves showcased with clips from the films showing them in action. The classic Aston Martin is here, as is the crocodile submarine, the underwater sled, and the cello case which got Dalton’s Bond into Austria.
For boys of all ages there is also a chance to play with the mini-cars of the Scalextric, as well as a snippet of models and other merchandise meant for Bond fans to take home. You can also buy the catalogue which illustrates the vehicles included in the exhibition, which in itself is worth the £12 price tag.
